My Dear Beck

Your wire recd. was surprised to know that you are still waiting on Paxton. Say old fellow are we going to loose all this summer and get nothing done. If Mr Paxton had not told me he would go I would have made different arrangements— Now George will you write and let me know if the Paxton outfit is going to do anything. If not I would like to know it. We would never got our consession if I had not pushed it. [2] And now I am going on with it if I go it alone— So take a moments time & write me—

Awfully busy

Cody
