Thought I would write you a few lines while waiting for breakfast. I have had a hard summers work and have not made much money so my expenses has been big and it being a new show had to advertise it largely but next season. I expect to clear a fortune with it. I am working my way home. or at least west. will close in   Omaha in October-

Well I have got out my petition for a divorce with that woman as long as I am going to. she has tried to ruin me financialy this summer Oh I could tell You lots of funny things how she has tried to bust up the horse ranch and buy more property & get the deeds in her name &c— Cousin Sophia since her daughter was out there has changed her tune.

Well I hope this will find you all well—

With Love

Brother
