Your confidential letter in handwrite was carefully destroyed, after having been carefully read. Its contents did not surprise me, since the situation outlined was in character. I have watched the actual game at Monte Carlo4 too often to under estimate that side of human nature. Logically, it is almost impossible to beat the bank: but it has been done. The excitement of trying keeps some fellows young until they pass seventy.
For my sins Tom Auld7 & wife8 have arrived in town. I would think they would refrain from bothering me. But not so. However, they won't get more than a few hours and a restaurant dinner out of me. The cleaners and packers are here stripping the apartment9 for summer.Affectionately Willie Mr. R. C. Cather1, First Savings Bank of Colusa, Colusa,3 California.
