Honest Injun, Klopfer, there isn’t any bad news at the moment except our cash position, which I presume is a reasonably familiar problem to you. At the present moment, we have accounts payable of $60,000, notes payable of $66,000. The latter figure includes $35,000 to the bank, $15,000 to ourselves and $16,000 in trade acceptances. Against that we have cash of only $11,000. The accounts receivable is between $130,000 and $140,000. This situation will probably get a little worse between now and September, but we are watching things very carefully and I don’t think the adverse balance will grow alarmingly.
Came back and a friend of mine flew me back to Santa Ana, letting me take the controls for a while. I think I’d make a hot pilot. If I’m ever transferred to a small field I’m going to learn to fly.

Mannie writes we may be able to pay off the 20M to-day and the balance the end of the month. That would be great. I’m keeping fingers crossed for Blyer. H. out here! Only Brown proofs.
Every time I see the length of our Fall list, I froth at the mouth, but that is water under the bridge now and the only thing we can do is to really live up to our resolutions in the future. This I promise you faithfully will be done. Very few of the VICTORY MARCH are bouncing back. It hasn’t been a sensation anywhere, but everybody seems to realize that it is the time of year and not the book and they all are willing to string along until the Fall, when they think they will really go to town with the book.
