Dear Friend;—
No dount you will be surprised to re­
ceive a letter from this out of the way
corner of the globe.
By consulting your map, you will find
that the Fiji Islands are some seven
thousand miles from dear old Estacada,
and that about six thousand, eight hun­
dred and ninety-nine miles of the dis­
tance are covered by the w aters of the
Pacific. Now to avoid becoming tedi­
ous, I will come to the point.
When I obtained “ shore leave” this
afternoon, the first thing that impress­
ed itself on my mind, was the large
number of Dodge Bros. Motor Cars,
which were going in all directions.
That immediately reminded me of you
and I involuntarily looked for the “ Cas­
cade garage.” Upon observing closer, I
found that two out of every three cars
in this important British Colony are
Dodge cars. That in my opinion, is a
big boost for Dodge Bros. Motor cars,
for the average Britisher is strong on
minimum cost and highest efficiency
where his motor car is concerned.
In the Hawaiin Islands the percent­
age is not so strong. Dodge Bros the
“ Lil ole Chevrolet, ” and “ Henry Ford”
appear to be running neck and neck,
but believe me, there is a surprising
number of them.
To any of my friends who may in­ i
quire, say that 1 have been shipwreck­
ed and a castaway on a barren coral is­
land, a few hundred miles south of the
equator, in mid Pacific ocean; that I
lived luxuriously for over two months
on a diet of sea fish, sea air and birds ! *
eggs diluted with rainwater; that 1 was
rescued, along with my shipmates and
% landed here in the Fi.i islands; that I
will sail in a few days for San Fraheis-
co and the good old II. S. A. Three !
cheers and a tiger f„r the good old U.
S. A. While the British authorities are
treating us royally here. “ There is no
place like home,” and “ what is home
without a wife and baby?” Me for that.
With kindest regards to you,
herald Wilcox.
