Dear Paul.

     Your last letter just came: it did me lots of good.  I am so glad you look at every thing as you do.  I have not lost ambition, if I go I will do my greatest work see if I dont.  I have the feeling that it would be the greatest thing in my life & find myself  [expecting ?] it to happen.  Still I shall fight to avoid it & believe I shall win[.]   Franklin is on their side - but I feel as I always have that this will make my case better[.]  My lawyer friends feel the same.  I wrote Walling to send the bonds & stock & money for coupons to you.  If you havent got them

C.S.D.

Just received word from Walling that he has sent you the bonds but has not the stock got the stock.  It must be somewhere in the office.  I had two boxes ? or it might be in my desk or somewhere else in vault.  Write Willie at once & have him look it up & send to you[.]
