Scope and Contents

Loose handwritten note that appears to be intended to include in a journal. Talmage is writing this while waiting at the Modena, Utah, train depot for a carriage to take him and his companion to St. George to attend a stake conference. Given this reference, it is likely this was written while Talmage was an Apostle, between 1911 and 1933. Most of the content is Talmage writing about hearing the telegraph machine he hears from the station agent's office. Date of production is not identified.
