Dear DeWitt –

I am sorry I did not answer your letter sooner but the name was not in the city directory or the telephone directory. So Paul looked it up as the ____ library here it is. I heard that Ruth had fallen and broken her hip. I am very sorry if this true. How is she getting along [?]
[E]ver love to both of you,
Your old friend
Clarence Darrow

Of course there is no
charge for this or any
thing that I can do
