Dec. 22

Dear Paul:

I have been in SanFrancisco for a week and find your two letters, and am glad to hear from you and to know that every thing is going so well. I have no doubt that my case will go to trial on Jan. 6/ I am not worrying about it; and am ready to take whatever comes. Of course with this bunch I might get stuck, but dont see how;still I realy dont care much on my own account; so far a as I am concerned I honestly think it would be b best for me and I absolutely have no fear or worry over it I never felt better in my life,and Ruby is all right too. There may be scare things in t thepaper from time to time as that is their system but I will keep you posted if there is any thing serious;nothing has been done by the Grand Jury and I hardly look for any such thing;if they tried further it would do them no good. I have lots of friends and if any thing should happen I would have more and then I could get my book written; so you see it is all right any way.Lovrto Lill Rockwells address is Belvue Idaho;you might send me an extra copy of the Mark Twain if you have one.


I have money enough for this fight
