And Another Purchase for Grandpa Wasden

This is a copy of a contract Grandpa signed the day after the first contract that is posted on the blog. This is written on a heavier paper, but had been folded in the middle for so long that I decided to just scan it flat, so read the right side and then the left side. Just in case it is difficult to read, the text is as follows:
Burlington Wyo. Jan 16th 1905
This agreament made this day 26th of Jan. Between J E Reid of Burlington Wyo Party of the first Part And Jas B Wasden of Byron Wyo Party of the second part.
