"Since I left Carlisle my health has been very good so far. I work on my father's land till I got work in a mill. At last I got married and settled down on a farm and now I has three children and getting along fine. Little I learned at carlisle has done me so much good. It is not the Athletics of gymnastics work which has done me good. I never believe in such work, they are no good to nobody. But the work which done me so much good and that what I learn up in YMCA ball also the society works. I am making great use of what I learned in the band. And I thank Mr Stauffer for giving me a little start. I am playing the same old instrument and make big moneys some times. But the best I can tell you of my life and that is what I learned at Carlisle and that is not to drink and use any form of tobacco. I go to church every sunday and trys to be a good upright father"
