Robert says he has heard many "melancholy" reports about James and wishes James would write and tell him about his troubles. Robert has had influenza but has only been absent 3 days from his business since he came to the circuit. In the reports concerning James, Robert heard that James was dead, and another that James was near death. It is more than an old man of 72 can stand. The circuit is getting along fine. Robert tells James he is standing on the shore of time just waiting to die. Robert says if James should die first, to look for him, because he will follow close behind. Abstract Number - 958
