He is in the hospital & I suppose some of us should visit him big sinner tho he be.Have laid the business we discussed Sunday before Mr Coleman & it will be settled somehow ere longI had a fine hearty letter from the President.No rain today.Remember me to the Van Dykes & Miss Brodt, & to your most cautious self. Never forget your strenuous climb to health.Your best lover J.M.
