Next littletownI lost three min. getting a gal. gas and then beat it on into "Winder Ga." A run of two hours from Atlanta. Stayed at a small hotel,same one my farther and myself stayed at,and got a good nights rest. The end of the first day's run. 250 miles........

Seeing the original hand writing would realy bring us right there in the moment.
But the typing still gets the story told.
Many thanks, I too look forward to the rest of his story and pictures.
It's kind of like a new movie or book release.

Fri. June 9th 1916 I had my breakfast early so I could get a good start at the road. About 6:45. I left Winder, Ga. and was on my way to Athens, Ga. The road to Athensis a VERY GOOD road,broadand hard but you have to be careful becauseat placesit seems to jump right off a cliff right into a chasm! Down you go,aroundsteep and sharp curves and then shoot out across a bridge at bottom ,thenup again on the other side about the same..........page 16............way as going down. A little less than an hour riding put me in Athens Which is a very good size town. The roads from here on are not so good,It is very hilly and rough, It gets good at times and thenbad ,and then bad to worse and then good for a while and so on. Gee! The sun is hot! The handle bars of the motorare so hotI can't touch them anywhere except on the rubber grips. And the heat from that engine!Good.............
