I have many beautiful remeuibranceï f the acts of my frionds in and around au Francisco. Por the first time I ully realized that frionds are better han money. I sawi little Ed. Worcn, as wie used to eall him, but he leeft ttle now, oifflier ia( brain, heart or body. He tipped tüie seales, the day, before I left San Franfcisco, atH99 1-2 ounds.
