Excerpt from A Colonel From Wyoming
I have read with great interest the advance sheets of your first literary venture. As a citizen, proud of my native province, I desire to thank you that from an active professional life you devote the hours, too often spent uselessly by young men, in doing service to your native land, and in putting in permanent form the manners of our people and virtues of days fast changing, I fear not to our profit. For an intellectual, well-educated province, too little has been done to describe our unrivalled scenery or the characteristics of our people. In describing both of these you have been successful, and I trust your first ven ture may be only the beginning of further and even more successful triumphs. I feel sure that you will strive to overcome any small defects that, as in the case of all young authors, may have crept into this charming story.
