Dear Paul

I would guess that the trial would come in about two months. It looks very favorable, but I will keep you posted. I really dont see how I can lose? but of course. And then if I should I have that all settled? somehow I hardly care I know the truth and am satisfied & feel sure that nothing better could happen to me or to you & that it would do more for me & the cause than any thing I could do? and that it would make me almost not pain? then too I would have much time to write? My spirits are bully now? & although in my heart I dont care still expect to win. Got your letter from Baehr about business[.]

It seems to me to be coming on all right. I hope your assistant wont ask for an other raise[.] Baehr should tell him his salary is high enough if he does[.]
