Dear Jennie -

If the flat is not rented & we are obliged to store the goods take th send the following sets to Adair's book Store (2d hand) 43 Van Buren St. I think they will send for them - & let them sell them on Commission. Smollet & Humes History of England. - "Edmund Burkes Works." Franklins works - The fine Edition of Walt Whitman. - None of these are of any value - If you want any of them take them - Then if Miss Carlin - Miss Wood - Jessie or any of our other friends want to take any of them on storage & any of our things it will pain that

much bother of storage - Vaughn is a piker & I don't like to let him chissel me out of $100 though I might some one else. If you can't [?] it furnished let the owner take it, though I would rather to keep it. I am feeling hopeful about things - though I, may loose, but somehow that doesn't look so bad, I am really convinced that it would do me good - though I don't want it— Any how it will be all right however it turns. My health was never better than now.

Your brother
