Well - Amazing! - So you are really getting over there before us! -
Enclosed a few notes that I hope may help slightly the "good time" you are sure to have any how -
Now mind be sure you go to Chicago - It would be inexcusably monstrous [p. 2] to miss it -
I scarcely have a moment - but that moment I give you to wish you all the bon voyages there, and about, and back - for now you have begun, I suppose you will end in a yacht of your own -
Get me money from the Lovell people! -
You have then our best wishes and come back soon - They do say that it is nothing of a journey after all -
Be sure you write from America - I shall be full of curiosity -
