[6] 01356Whatever have you been doing that so awful a fate should come about you!! For mercy's sake try to conquer that Examiner editor himself or else flee beyond his reach, to the highest cool green redwoods. "Head hot, and feel cold." If it were not for Helen, I would leave all and carry you away from so dangerous a place. Helen is awake and sends many kisses to dear papa. Lovingly, Louie
