We had a very comfortable night on the train and had to call for a blanket before morning. Denver2 is hot, too, but not nearly so hot as Nebraska4. The greater elevation, of course, makes a difference. We were having such a pleasant time with you and Elsie5 2 that no heat under a hundred degrees would have driven us away.
Will you please mail my draft to me at
The La Salle
I will get there on Monday and may stay several days. I will let
Edith8 have whatever cash I have left as
she has done some shopping in Denver and is now short of funds, so I
will will depend upon finding
3 a letter from
you awaiting me at La Salle hotel on Monday.
By the way, father, if Edith and I should ever be caught in a wreck when we are travelling about together, you ought to know where my papers and will are. They are in the safety deposit vaults of the Garfield National Bank, Fifth Ave. and 23d St New York9, and Isabelle10, (Mrs. Jan Hambourg) is my 4 executor. Please make a note of it somewhere: safety deposit box 7032, Garfield National Bank.
Thank you once more, my dear father, for your patience with my moody disposition.

THE BROWN PALACE HOTEL

P.S. I made Isabelle my executor because she knows my publishers12 personally, and knows how to deal with them.
