THE LOVE LETTERS OF AN
April 13, 1900.
Mr Dzabest: Up at fire-forty this
morning. Asked the Magnificent Night
Clerk for mail. He said, "None till
eight." Got a shave. Asked the H.N.
C. again, time six o'clock. He said, "No
mail for two hours." Head the paper
and got breakfast. Met Talboys; he k
the fellow I told yon of. At 9even-fifty-fire
I slipped away from him and asked
M. N. C. for letters. This time he got
mad. Finally, at eight-fifteen, receded
yours of yesterday, and now, at eight-forty-five,
am answering it.
You're the dearest, sweetest, loveliest
lady in the land, and when I get this
Trust formed I'm coming home to tell
yon so. Yours, Axos.
April 12, 1900.
Lovxxg: I'm afraid I'm settled here
for some few days more. Chester came
up from Richmond. He's fearfully
down on trusts, but Talboys and I are
putting up a stiff Jolly.
I'm glad you're going out a bit HaTe
all the fun you can. The flowers aren't
anything; you know I lore to send them.
Chester's a nice fellow. He knows
your people. Talk him up to them and
see if he goes.
It's almost midnight and I'm dead.
Talked myself hoarse today; but Ches
ter held off. Expect Dennis, of Dennis
Harrey company, tomorrow. Hope hell
have some effect on Chester.
Do you know how much I love you?
O my loTe, my lore, how did a gentle
little lady like you pick up with a rough
old fellow like me?
April 13, 1900.
Dearest: Fearfully upset at not hear
ing from you all day. Wonder if you're
ill. Telegraph me if you are, or if you
need me, and III drop all and go to you.
You re first always.
Only time for these few lines. Dennis,
Talboy, Chester, Piymton and 1 meet in
a few minutes for a terrible struggle.
Iron must consolidate.
I Ioto you, lore you, love you. If I
don't get a letter from you in the morn
ing I'll wire you for newe,
April 14, 1900.
Sweet: Glad to hear from you to
day. Sorry to learn your mother'd been
ill. Glad she's better. Don't hesitate
to use the horses.
Awful day yesterday; we talked iron
all day, Chester stiff as the deuce. We
must get him in or all will come to noth
ing. He's sent for his partner, CarroL
bo I'll have to wait till next week, I'm
Give my regrets to your mother, and
don't work too hard taking care of her.
I'm so lonesome for you I don't know
what to do. Glad you liked the ring. I
saw it here and it reminded me of you,
my pearl. Your
April 15, 1900.
My Giel: Iron still as hard as ever.
Carroll due tomorrow, and I hope he'll
make Chester come, It makes me ill to
think of the inducements we've offered
We haven't done much all day much
business I mean. I slept all morning
and certainly was disappointed not to
hear from you this afternoon. Chester
and I went out to look at the Western
Foundry. I liked his way of looking at
things, so after dinner I asked him to
come down to my room for a smoke. I
must be getting soft, I think, for pres
ently I got on your people and then on
you. It seems he knows you; he told
me that you and he had a Bummer to
gether in the mountains. Somehow I
showed him your picture, and I couldn't
help seeing, dear girl, that he's been in
lore with you, and I can't help seeing
that he Iovee you now. I've been envy
ing him his good looks and youth and
money and well, I felt old and rough
alongside of him, but now, now I've got
what he, with all that, couldn't get,
why, I'm as happy and proud as a
prince. He's a good fellow and I don't
see why, but I suppose you had your
Let me hear from you regularly,
dearie, or I'll come home.
April 16, 19002 P. M.
Dxaete: I'm so tired I ache, but I
can't let twenty-four hours pass without
some message to my darling.
Still no word from you. How can
you treat me so? I've read your last
little note fifty times, I think.
Awful day with Talboys, Chester and
Carroll. We're succeeding, but it's hol
low to me BinceTve had no word from
O my darling, I'm afraid I've been too
happy. Your loving
April 17, 1900 Noon.
Mr Dablixg: Your letter came just
now, and I'm the happiest man in the
world. When there was no letter in
the morning mail I made up my mind
I'd cut home if none came at noon.
Sorry your mother was so ill; had no
idea it was bo serious; but now that she
has a nurse, you'll have time to write
me every day, please, if it's only a line.
Dearie, thank you for telling me
about Chester. So you guessed he
loved you, but he never told you. I
wonder why! Well, I'm glad. You
might have found him more attractive
than me. There, I doo't mean that,
Yesterday was a magnificent success,
and now that I've heard from you, I can
care about it. Chester's come in, and
after a few busy days over detail I'll be
home Friday, I hope.
Talboys is waiting, so must stop. How
happy I am, and all through you.
April 18, 1900.
Deab Little Oxe: Day after tomorrow
I'll be with you, dearest. Won't it be
great? How the time drags! Spent all
day talking over ways and means. Tal
boys is with me. Dennis and Piymton
are crafty and think Chester and Carroll
are getting too much; they talk of want
ing to freeze out Chester and Carroll,
but I can't see it; it won't be a go if we
aren't all together. It's a big thing,
dearie, and I'm proud of it, for it's all
Got you a Bouvenir of it. It's a stun
er, and we'll call it your "Iron Consoli
dation tiara," your diamond beyond
diamonds! And I'll be with you soon,
dearie, and tell you for myself all I
thjnk of you.
I've been waiting for a letter all day,
little one; you oughtn't to treat me so.
I suppose you're working yourself to
death over your mother. Can't the
