San Francisco, Jan, 15, 1910.Darling Helen:-I am down here getting some of my old notes type written, to try to find something worth while in it. I was at the Martinez Bank last Monday and had your term account written up. There is about Fifteen Thousand to your credit. I have with my other papers your Thousand Dollar note to that Stanford Club. Bank dividend is about to be declared and next Freburary the wharf rent will be due,which will increase your credit to about 16 Thousand.We were all well when I left home last Tuesday. I amgoing home to-morrow or next day and expect to find letters fromyou. Be very careful these stormy days and above all things avoid chances of taking the least cold.Ever affectionately,Your fatheer,


San Francisco
