Dear Arthur

Yours to hand of the 9th which reached me

on the 20th. I also received your photo by the same

post which I think does you credit. I also received during

the same week 6 papers which seemed rather to much

to digest & which I assume had been held back some

time.  If you can let me have one or two it is quite

sufficient but of course this will depend on the post

office delivery there. I believe they are very much

understaffed if in fact they are knocking off a great

no. of deliveries in Shipley they are stopping off delivery

of the evening mail. In regard to papers from

here it is impossible for me to send you any

direct all papers for Neutral Countries have

to be subscribed for & must be posted by the

Newspaper office. I have taken out a subscription

for the Bfd Weekly Telegraph & instructed them

to forward to you & you should have received three

already. I notice you have had another advance

& are also making money in other ways if this goes

on & you know when you have had enough you will

not be long before you are able to wrap up & come

over here if only for a trip.  I see you have been

considering the question of starting in business on your

account. This is all right nothing venture nothing

have but study very carefully what you are doing

before committing yourself & in any case go in by

yourself do not have a partner. It will very probably
