So one nice day, uncle and I drove over to see him, for I felt sure I knew him.

One the way uncle told me he was married, and had been there about five years. He worked for him when he first came to California.
When we reached there, I found it to be my old school mate, Art and he did not know me. "Well, Art, old boy, how are you? " said I. "Well, I have seen you before, but I can not call your name" said he. "Will is my name, and I came from Colorado about a week ago."
"O, yes, I know who you are now, but I never thought to see you in California, but here you are."
