Dear Paul

     I have not yet got any definite news from L.A.  It looks as if it would be all right though I dont know when.  Any how I am not worrying they cant hurt me[.]  You had better give your mother $60 a month?if I am obliged to go to trial again we can reduce it while it is running.  I have been busy on the Arson case not a chance to win[.]  Dont get much out of it only $300 though best to have it known I was here.  Got 350 last week speaking &  shall do some more this summer probably 10 to 15 at about 100 net[.]  Think I can do a good deal next fall & winter if I wish.  Am glad your business is looking up[.]  Was talking with Canfield about the possibility of making some consolidations on the

basis of each taking bonds on old plants for their value & then consolidation stock somewhere in [?] to value.  Of course it is not in good [?] to do.  But you could run it & have salary raised & stop competition & shut off about 5000?  a year expense & give you more time &  perhaps it could be figured out to be a good thing[.]  Baer will talk with you when he comes.  But I wont do any thing that dont appeal to you & him.  It is time though that you had a larger field.
     I shall not change insurance policy to pay more.  If my case is finished & we are out of danger of financial trouble as we will be in that event.  I think it would be best to drop it.  I find that in four years my rate will be about doubled xxx then if I should live 10 more doubled again so we cant beat the game[.]  In the mean time there will be nothing  to pay in August & by the time the next xxx payment is due we can make up our mind.  Am quite sure I shall be there by this summer.
