Message: Hello Otto! Well Otto you had to wait long enough for an answer to your postal from me. I was so busy all the time since I am home, hunting, clearing land etc. that I forgot all about postals. I intended to come through your place on my way home, but was in such a hurry, as they lot of work waiting for me at home. I like the country very well. Oh (John?) Otto! talk about the hunting up here. I only wish you would come and visit me for a couple days. I know you would enjoy it. Please (they?) come up once. Robert

End Note: Answer soon.

Vesper is an unincorporated village situated in sections 12 and 18, Hansen Township, and has a population of about 300. It is traversed by three railroads, the Chicago & Northwestern, the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, and the Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie, more commonly known as the "Soo." A small stream, Hemlock Creek, runs through the village from northeast to southwest, ultimately joining the Yellow River in Remington Township. The village is ten miles northwest of Wisconsin Rapids, the county seat.
