Dear Paul

     I have not heard from you since I left and am wondering about the coal situation.  I was in N.Y. most of last week on a case & I called up [Schlesers ?] office and found that S. had been ill for a long xxx time with a stroke & was in Albany & probably would not [recover?].  In the mean time his son George your Chum was running the business.  Got hold of George & he asked me to lunch with him & we had a nice visit he inquired all about you & was glad to hear from you.  He thinks he will stay in N.Y. and go out of the law business.  He seems like a fine fellow.
     Baeher called on xxx me yesterday & we had a fine time.  I took him to dinner & he went xxx away on a train, probably you will see him before you get this.  I hope the other companies may go in for a raise & that you will go in with them.  I presume it would not be best to do it alone unless things get worse.  Send a line about the coal?
