William Wingate Sewall has 100 cattle to practice on during winter. He doesn't believe cattle are too hard to care for and the work hasn't been difficult. The country is "queer" and dirty but the soil looks healthy and the water is good. Sewall guesses there is a chance to make money with cattle and Theodore Roosevelt is optimistic.
