Dear Paul;

   I have been thinking about the oil business, and do not know but what we better take a reasonable chance. I guess we can afford it. If you think it is wise, perhaps we might go $2500.00 a piece. Of course, I know that nobody can be sure of a proposition like this.

   In addition to that, Mr. Holly, who is in the office, wants to take $1000.00; another friend of mine, James McGill, wants $500.00, end George Schilling wants $300.00. I could easily get some more if I try. I explained it carefully, and told them it is a gamble, but they would go in on equal terms with the rest.

   Write me what you think about it. I can get the money any time you are ready for whatever you see fit to do.

   I don't know when I will get out there, possibly not before the holidays, but certainly then. Chances are I will come before. I am trying to close up matters, so I wont have to bother much with it all. I have a great many calls for lectures, and I can put in any time I want on that, but I am anxious to go south for a good share of the winter.

Am perfectly well
