My Dear Brother1:

I am afraid you are too busy to send me a bill, so I must make a guess and send you a check. I don't want you to be out money for me, as well as time and trouble. I'd love to write you a long letter, but I am working furiously now to try to get this book3 done before I leave town2. I shall be here until July 1st, anyway.

With love Willie
