Your skin needs it badly now; but you had such a little time and I was just so selfish that I wanted all of it for myself. Dear, I am enthused over the possibility of us going out on a real scientific expedition together. I want my precious boy with me on some of my lecture trips, in fact I want him with me as much as I can get him..." Signed "G.W. Carver." Two punch-holes in the top margin; natural folds.
