Dear Paul:-

   I have seen the manager of the Chicago Fire & Marine Insurance Co. about the matter that Billy Hayden is interested in.  He tells me that Griffen worked for them as a stock-seller up to yesterday.  The manager knew Griffen very well ? had known him for a number of years.  He says that he is positive that Griffen is honest and that he has frequently seen him give money to people on different stories and its just the kind of thing he would be apt to do.  My idea is that he probably did just what he claimed to do.  Anyhow, I think they should take his story as he gave it.  There seems to be no reason to suspect him.
