Dear Roscoe1;

I am leaving Chicago3 Monday (the 13) on Burlington Number One, and expect to take Helen Louise4 aboard at Hastings5.

We get into Denver6 in the evening—I think we must stay the night there and go on to you7 the next evening.

Please drop a line to your friends at the Albany8 asking them to hold a very quiet room with GARFIELD SAFE DEPOSIT COMPANY, FIFTH AVENUE BUILDING, 7 WEST 23RD STREET, N. Y.

bath for night of June 14th for your sister, Miss Cather. Don't mention my first name, or I will get no rest. I'm writing in the vault of the Bank, it's the only cool spot in New York2.

Give all your daughters9 a hug for me.

Willie
