Dear Paul

I wired to day for you to send 2500? [.] It is wrotten but dont see any way out. I seem well put after this time, and I presume we had better hang on. Dont seem as if things could go much lower. I am sending $1000? and if I dont need all you send I will send it back. Any how I guess we better stick. If it should need more after that I wouldnt know just how to get it unless you can so you better write me[.]
