k 9/26 Dear Alfred1;

Please send me a wire4 telling me what you think about this. Is it a compliment or an attempt to get something for nothing? Half an hour means a good many words, and I do not like lecturing. This telegram has lain in the Keene Fitchburg5 office for some days, owing to the carelessness of the Postal Telegraph. When our own office wires me about anything, always send by Western Union.

I arrived here on the 23d, after three days at the Parker House6, in Boston7.

Don't forget to stop and see me when you and Blanche8 go to Exeter9 to see Pat10.

Hastily W. S. C.
