Dear Paul.

     Just returned from the bank & fixed up that matter[.]  Gave them the $4000— owed them $4000— in bonds  63 to 70 Inclusive.  Send me an order for the 4000— bonds that are there.  The stock market doesnt look very good but think we had better hold on.  think I can take care of it until July & it ought to be all right as it is.  If you are short any thing there [expect ?] it a good time to come.  Things ought not to go lower.  Glad you sold some bonds & hope you can sell more.  I was sorry not to come but couldnt get away.  Go into the trial of the De Priest case on Tuesday.  (one of the Chicago graft cases) & it will probably take

until  July 1st[.]  Shall come out the first thing on summer vacation & stay a week or two any how.  Think I can start about the 4th of July.  I should think if prices keep up there the Public Utility board would raise the price of gas & electricity.  Hope they do though I presume we would not want to unless the [rest?] did it.  

Love to all
