She smiled at Caleb and said " My friend is beautiful" and from Philadelphia and heading out in two days". "If you see her traveling Please stop and check up on her".
Now Caleb wasn't much of a talker but John did reply. "Sure will Miss Dolly and you are just as Beautiful". "We are hoping to be home in another day and if we see her we will check up on her". Dolly thanked the men and they left.
