Dear Paul

     I want you to send a Draft or Cashiers check to Fred. E Golding on receipt of this Via Air Mail to 608 Central Bldg. Los Angeles Cal for $4500?[.]  Mr. Golding is one of my dearest friends.  He was one of the strongest men on the jury in Los Angeles & seems to need this now.  He has considerable property but it is more or less encumbered.  I am sure I will get it back in a year but I would send it just as quickly if I knew I would not.  Holly wired me that the deal went through all right.  Of course I am very glad, and am anxious for you to come to Chicago as soon as possible.  I am trying a case that has already taken a week & will take another one this is my last one.  Wire me here that you have sent the check[.] Always
