Dear Paul

     This mornings paper which reports todays market dont look so good, but I dont know of any thing to do but Dont xxx buy any more stocks for me.  There will be time enough when I get back.  You know how I feel and have felt for a long time but there is nothing to do about except for God sake dont let the brokers tell you to buy.  If when I get back we have any money and I think we will Still have some we will find something to buy.  I am sending you a letter to use if you want to.  You will remember Epstien.  We called on him once.  If you want to use this letter I think he can tell you as much as any one ? which is nothing[.]  Tell him that you arent asking for any aid that I can give you some and am glad to do it if you think xxx you should take it.  I see no reason why I should not get back the first of March.  Of course there is some raw weather after that ?  still it is generally not very cold, and I dont need to go out any how unless the weather is all right.  If you send me $1000? more after this date it will be all I need.  You can send it so I will get it at any time between now and the 20th of February.  I am sorry you had to take up Will Carlins note.  He has been with me so long and is such a good fellow that I would feel I must do it for him.  I want you to take the money from my account to pay it but still keep the note.  Also from now on send what  Let me pay what your mother needs or wants.  I dont want her to know that we are losing any thing if we can help it  Any way, We dont want to have her cut down.  But I think you ought not to carry so much of a load and it doesnt make the slightest difference to us.  you will need all your money but if you see any chance to reduce dont neglect the chance.
     Now I dont want you to worry on my account or to take it seriously.  Many others have gone through the same thing and most of us much xxx more.  I am much interested in your getting something else to do when I get back.  I am quite sure you will

Never get much ahead there.  And I feel that you can do any thing you undertake.  Except that both of us ought to give up gambling as a regular business.  I will be glad to get back and am not letting things trouble me very much ?

C.S.D.

Of course I want you to take the money you send me out of my Acct[.]

My Dear Mr Epstien

     This will introduce my son Paul.  You may remember him.  He was over to your office with me once.  He needs some advice in my absence.  Won't you be good enough to let him see you.  Shall be home about March first and hope to see you[.]  With all good wishes

Your friend
