Notes Russell penned this western-themed New Year's greeting in 1916 and illustrated it with an old-time cowboy-clad in wooly chaps and a slicker-standing with a bottle raised in salute to the recipient.

There is a poem, written in ink, on the right half of the page: It reads: "Heres hoping that health rides herd / on your camp / and sicknes dont locate / your smoke/ for with health by your side / Life's a long smooth ride / and while health is your friend / your not broke".
