Sojourner Truth
Ares Vallis

July 16, 1997

Dear Mom,

Last night I had to leave Yogi. It was difficult, but I must go on with this mission, and I swore to him I'd be back. The Earth Team reported this to the public:


I'm supposed to analyze "Scooby Doo" next. I have about 9 feet to go before I reach him. On the way, I'm to take readings of the Martian soil.

The IMP took pictures of the Martian sunrise, atmospheric capacity and the lander's windsocks. He's still pouting about missing out on Yogi and me.

Earth set at 6:26 a.m. and sunset was at 8:54 a.m.
