1 Dear Laddie
3 That old person has also written to me. He is certainly mad. Cron has
4never had a share in any company in his life, thank the Gods, & never
5had a farm, & never heard of such a thing as the Homestead Company. He
6is certainly as mad as March hare.
8 I m am every day meaning to come & see you in town but never get so
11 I wish I knew more what your position really was. I can see some of
12your difficulties perhaps clearer than you do yourself.
14 Right & truth must & do prevail in the long run. I have been young &
15now am old but I have not seen a lie succeed. That is what I pin my
16faith to.
18 Good bye, dear Lad-die.
19 Ol
21 I seem always looking for Cron.
