Dear Paul

     Your statement for Aug. was fine.  Hope it will keep up[.]  I have been thinking over the bond & indebtedness business.  You know April 18th  next will be my 60th birth day & while I dont care any thing about this I begin to think it is time that I got things cleared up & also that I get some regular money & not stick very close to business.  Of course I never have killed myself working & have had a pretty good time of it still I want to get matters fixed as soon as I can.  Say by next June,  I am obliged to take up Mrs. [Lathrups?] $4000?  which I will do.  Then I will put in all the money I get.  Until then? dont know how much that will be.  If you can sell any bonds do it.  I will do the same.  At that date I think we had better sell our stocks & [?] (if we have any left) & take up the balance.  It wont help matters for you to take the bonds & borrow the money.  They ought to be disposed of & I think any how that we are not xxx very good speculators & had better go very slow on the stock business? I have [done ?] no more & if S.P. & B. & O. get up so they average [?]  think I will sell them out.  Dont like to urge you to do something you dont want to but I feel as if we ought to do this & I will feel better over it[.]   Then after that I can pull out some money & you can.  And you will have enough to speculate? all you ought to.  Have not seen

Baehr but will in a few days & if he will go out with me I want him to.  I am not going to urge you to make a sale to him against your judgment but if we get a good deal we had probably better make it.  How is Sept  [?][.]   Dont know whether Jennie has left there.  I haven't seen her yet.
