not received it & all you will have to do will be to write to Boston & get a duplicate & send me. If you did not get my letter please attend to the matter at once if you have the money convenient. If if cramps you let me know. Being often cramped for money myself & cramping you too is something I do not [[strikethrough]] wish to do [/strikethrough]] desire. I see by the papers gold has been down all along lately as it is a good time to buy foreign exchange. Please let me know how matters on the farm are. I presume you are getting along well. I often wish I could be with you but must wait. I hope you got my letter for it was a long one & I would hate to duplicate it
I am getting along well they say, but have a great deal of hard study before me yet
If I am successful in the end you will know it.
I await your reply
