(Devil's Kitchen) Stayed last night in Cody instead of Lake area of Yellowstone – will soon be in Caspar and on to Lusk for the night.  Had late start due to more car trouble so couldn't leave Cody til around 1 PM.  Rather there than this desolate area.

H. wants you to turn on water heater please.  Girls are beginning to talk of getting home quicker.  No reservations after Sunday Night.  Love to all – See you Wednesday.  Please save card for girls.
