Dear Paul

There is nothing new here, but may be soon. Any how I am not afraid or worried about the future whatever it may be[.]

I wrote Willie Carlin to send you my stock [ etc ?] he may send the tin boxes with it or may pick it out & send it. Use your best judgment about transferring it to Jacobs & [?] in case of trouble. Am sorry your mother is ill write me more about it if it is serious[.] I hope she may recover soon. Will write often[.]
