I will let Bob's statement tell the story. Copies of his statement and of this letter should go to G. B. Woodward's and to Curry's. I judge that the marred place can be made entirely right. If desired, Bob can make affidavit to his statement. We Plan to arrive home on Friday, October 30. The car can then be inspected. They say that if a dog bites a man that is not news, but if a man bites a dog that is news. Cars have been bumping horses for years. This, I judge, is the first case in which a horse has bumped an automobile. ‘The car will be historic and will command a higher price. Very truly yours, W. L. Bryan.
