getting a good piece for him in Hong Kong. The name of the material is called [[?]]. You can get 6 yds. for me & the material must be the best you can get. Please try the big stores, may be you can get something. I enclosed check for $100.00 for the cost - if the balance is enough to get an ACME CODE (small size) for sending telegraphs abroad for my wood oil business, please also get one for me from the foreign Book Store. The best thing you can ask ay pilot to bring it up for me as I may get free duty, otherwise send it by Airmail & attach the bill of sale for me to pay duty here.
I may return to H.K. to see you before you leave - tell your Papa that we try to organized a transportation co. for two Hundred thousand Dollars, will inform him all the particular later. Cheers! Take Good Care!
