your interesting letter of May 1st is rec'd. and enjoyed. 
I am very sorry for Ed. Hauss. I fear he is overworried. Why not try to induce him to take a long vacation during the dull time of business. The [[insertion]] coming [[/insertion]] winter may see great activity again in his line. The March business was, to me, far better than I expected.
Many thanks for your kind attention to Copper Ranger and other matters of mine. Yes, my esteemed and friendly expert in Coppers, like other Bostonians including Lawson, was a mere league or two out of his bearings; still, the price did advance and let's say "he did it"!
You and your family are keeping well I trust, to you all, I sent kindest greetings. The growth in buildings here since Louise's time is great. 
Very sincerely yours 
Charles L Freer
