Dear Paul

Did you get the books! Can you send me the copy of Mark Twains,"The Nature of Man"[?] If you can I will have some more copies made. Prof. Foster wants to read it[.] Have you seen Mark Twains new book The Mysterious Stranger, it is a peach. How about Dec. statement & things in general? Have hoped to get out but dont now know when any how I will one of these days. Nothing especially new[.]
