Dear Paul

     I got your letter the other day [billing ?] your goods for June.  I am glad to see it growing[.] Hope you will get a freight reduction but I know the [rails ?] never do any more than they are obliged to do.  I feel as if we ought not to wait any longer than this fall, we should be [making?] more money and you should not be working so hard.  Your time is worth too much too to spend it on the things clerks can do.  I would like to go to Greece, Italy, Spain  Egypt & Constantinople this winter, but I dont like to leave business for three or four months at that time of year until I feel that the business out there is in such shape that it will keep on improving and with a good fair income in sight say at least 1000? per month[.]  Of course I dont want to worry you but I really think we should face the situation & do the best possible about it.  I have been here a week and hope to stay until the middle of September if possible[.] Am gradually getting better.  We have a house & Fay Lewis & Mr. & Mrs. Eldridge; teachers from  [Richfield?]

are with us.  It is a very beautiful country.  I am writing a book on Criminology[.]  Have made a good start and will have it done [subject ?] to [reason ?] by the first of Sept.[.]  About 80 000 or 100000 words[.]  Ask Jessie why she didnt copy The Hen with the chicken[.]  She musnt grow up like her Grand father & great grand father & put things off.  Tell her I want it[.]  You can write directly here
