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
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.
