I enclose the receipt for the insurance. Will you please call their attention to the fact that they have my middle initial
wrong. It was correct on the envelope, so I expect that it is simply an error of the stenographer but it's better to
have every thing correct.
I am glad that the room is all right for the return. At present it looks as if travel in England would not be possible this
summer. My but I am sorry to have England in such a mess.
Take the money for my tickets and for yours as well from my account in the bank.
Will you ask Henry about the B and 0 stock and bonds. I understand that the lease of the B and 0 tracks into New York from
the Pennsylvania Union Depot expires next year and will not be renewed which will mean that the B and O trains will have to
use the ferries again. I think that I shall be glad to take them on that account for I used to enjoy the ferry rides but
I imagine that it will actually cut down the passenger traffic a lot. I think that the B and O refused to join in the expense
of the Union Depot while it was being built. I think that all my B and O stuff is only 4% so that if I lost nothing on the
sale I might be getting 6% safely on the money. At any rate will you please ask Henry.
How is his back. I wish that he could get over that trouble. Poor man, he has enough to worry him without his own back.
I am glad that the two invalids are getting along so finely.
Cunningham is coming to New York to see is to-morrow.
