Thursday Noon

My Dear Sweetheart,

Was mighty glad to get your letter last night. It seems that you have been away from here for ages. Am getting anxious to see you. Have been working on the manuscript pretty hard. It is a short one and the problem is to write it up so that Dr. White will not have too many changes. I have the first draft completed. The first part has already been written several times. It is practically the same thing that I gave in my part of our talk in Wash.

Mr. Laake has been on the job several days this week and seems to be OK now. Mr. Bishopp had to have his eye job repeated, but he thinks it is now OK. He has been getting some estimates on crating his library & household goods. So far as I know he has not yet had any luck in selling his home. Mr. Brundrette is working hard. He has a problem of his own and he seems to be getting somewhere with it. We will miss Gingell but things will go more quietly now.

Tomorrow I expect to find out something about the loan renewal. Will write you all about it. Carl is having two companies to look the thing over. I am having another from the standpoint of monthly payments. I have an idea that Carl’s judgement is OK about a straight renewal if we intend to sell. The other proposition is mighty attractive. Payments of $8 to $9 per $1000 per month, would clean up the whole amount in 10 or 15 years. The rents would do this OK. In 15 years the rents would pay taxes, insurance, & allow for considerable improvements.

Will write again tomorrow. I love you Dear and you have no idea how much I miss you. I expect to see you as soon as I can but it probably will not be real soon. If you want to return before I can come let me know. Also if you need some money, don’t fail to tell me.

With all my love,
