Van Buren Street, Topeka, Kansas. I’ve wandered up, I’ve wandered down, Thro’(sic) contry(sic)-side and teaming town, My home was where I hung my hat, But this old town’s changed all of that. Dear Little Brown Eyes. Yes at last you have a card. Did not expect one did you well any way, I kept my word. Will see you when the roses bloom in Jan. EP Janserson. New York City.
