WARDEN.ABSOLUTELY FIRE PROOF HOTEL300 ROOMS.THE METROPOLE COMPANYPROPRIETOR.2Chicago,and it is astonishing the improvement it has made. I told the doctor, last night, that I believed that I was well, and could now go to work. You ought to have heard the raking over he gave me. Told me that I was in good condition to fully recover, but that I had several months yet to do so, of very careful nursing of my heart to acomplish it. That I could by carelessness undo, in five minutes all that I had gained in five weeks work. This is rather discouraging but I will have to stand it, for I feel it is right.My wife's neice, Rhea Logan, is to be married the 20th, at the family's summer home at Darien Conn, on Long Island sound. We leave for there the 12th inst, and they want us to stay down there, with them, a month, I dont know that I can stay that long, but the doctor thinks it will help me very much, the sea air, and the quiet life I must lead. I am very anxious to get my stuff out to California, and get to living once more. I hope to leavve here, for Pasadena, about the 15th of October.My address here will still be at this hotel, and letters will be forwarded tome. Mrs. Sellers is at her dressmakers, but know she will join me in kind regards to you all. Were very sorry to hear of brother Keith's accident, kindly remember us to him.Yours very sincerely[illegible]03906
