Hey fellas,

I guess I been out here a long time now. Seen just about the whole team come 'n go. Had the time of my life bein' out here for a while, but... shit. This place ain't the same anymore. Just about all the fellas I signed up with've gone on home already. Guess it was only a matter of time 'fore I joined 'em, too.

'Fore I go, though, I got a couple things to say.

First off. I'm real sorry 'bout goin' missin' the past couple weeks. Wound up callin' myself in to the hospital. Guess between my, uh... well, anyhow, seems that heart condition I had earlier, the one that went away? Didn't actually go away after all.

The Doc up at Liberty Memorial took some kinda samples or x-rays or somethin'. Forget what all he said. Gist of it is, one of my valves got all busted up, 'n now I guess the whole thing's swellin' up. S'pose all this drinkin' I been doin' after hours hasn't helped much.

Guess that explains all that, anyhow. Hadn't been keepin' up too well for a while now. Guess I could blame the staff changes, or the booze, but, well. Excusin' the saying, my heart hasn't been in all this for a good long while. Guess it mighta been back when all those folks left end of September, or... hell, who'm I kiddin'.

I'm real sorry 'bout takin' off quick like this, but I got most of my things packed up the past couple weeks. Figure I'll take ol' Demo's cat with me — I ain't got the heart to leave another animal behind like that, 'n ol' Meggie's a sweetheart. Gettin' older, too, same's me.

Them chickens're all grown up — been scratchin' out in the yard for a couple weeks now. Guess it'll be up to you folks to look after 'em. And the yard. And... hell, all of it. I'm real sorry.

Anyhow, uh... guess that's it. It's sure been a fine pleasure working with you folks. Most fun I've had in years, 'n all things considered, that's really sayin' something. Know I haven't talked to a lot of you much, but you seem like real good people. 'M sure you'll do the company name proud.

Take care, 'n if you wanna stop by 'fore I head off home, feel free to. Ain't gonna be hangin' around long, mind you. Got a garage waitin' on me out there, 'n while it ain't got my name on it per se, I know I'm not about to keep that business partner of mine waitin' any longer than he has to. I'll try and drop you folks a postcard if the company lets the thing get through.

You ever find yourself stranded out Austin way, you give us a ring.

'F course, Doc. Wouldn't ever dream of losin' touch with ya after all this while. Count on that much, anyhow.

And heck, I wouldn't mind seein' ya anytime you feel like stoppin' by, either. You ever feel like takin' some time off, come pay us a visit.

Uh, also. If I don't see you before I go... thanks. For... hell. All of it. You've been a hell of a lot more than good to me, and I ain't about to forget it. I mean that.

Sure thing, D— uh, Mauritz. Don't feel like you gotta — I know that train comes in awful early. I wouldn't say no to a chat before I go, though, either way.

I, uh... not real sure what you mean by that last, but thank you kindly anyhow, Spy. Take good care of the place, huh?

And thanks, yourself. F'you ever find yourself gettin' lonely out here, you write and I'll see about gettin' you a place to stay.

Might take some doin', mind, and I can't guarantee a cultured fella like you'll really appreciate the ranch's ambiance. But the offer still stands.
