Thursday evening? March 20?

Dear Paul?

     Very glad indeed to get your good letter, which was shared by your father,? between trains, about, returned from San Francisco and turned right 'round and left tonight for Sacramento, where he is to address a Senate Audience on Anti-Capital-Punishment-law tomorrow night,? get back here and make a speech here Sunday evening on same subject here in Blanchard Hall to leagu working on a Bill that is being pushed in this state.  Next Thursday noght he is to talk on Single Tax in big Auditorium here, and a big jam is being promised, and will no doubt come true.  By the way, the Single Tax people here gave D? a banquet one night immediately after the verdict, at the swell down-town caterer-upstairs?about as if such an affair were given upstairs at Huyler's or Gunther's in Chicago, and there certainly was a solid crowd of about oh several hundred, I believe?! and it was an unusually enthusiastic, alive, appreciative, inspiring company, and D? was wonderfully electric and electrifying, and everyone there sparkled somehow.
     Much love to you all from us both, you may be sure.  Your fine, game stand lightens the worry a heap!

I find that was my last leaf on the tablet, but a little accident like that is nothing to worry over, ok? I may resort to the stiff pasteboard back before I finsih.  Well,? your dad sure is one splendid man, Paul, and i want you to be everlastingly proud of him, ? and I that you are, ? and that is one of the qualities in you that I respect and adores, ? for not many fellows have fathers like yours, as you also realise, I know.  He has been so manly and bit and far above and beyond these pigmy persecutors that have pecked away at his unassailable nature, ? and the whole town seems to recognise it all, and to take off its hat to him for his attitude toward them all; when he arrives at the right place for making exceptions to this kindly, tolerant, forbearing spirit,?: and it is time to respond and defend himself in closing arguments, or in speeches to the world, then he overwhelms the people with another kind of unusual ability, for fair? while he is at it!!!  But by that time it has been so plainly deserved and called forth, that no-one can possibly criticise D--'s responses.  They are what the worm did when it was stepped on once too often, as everyone realizes! ? and sort of accentuates that he is ordinarily peaceable and unaggresive, if not goaded too far,as it were.
