him, and make the matter public: he
asked Hess to wait until Monday, but
Hess refused - and he is to let Hess
know within an hour what he will do.
I regret the matter very much for Claypool
alone is to blame for destroying this young
mans prospects. I saw Claypool going
to dinner today at noon - down the public
street with a sore faced whore known as
"Birdie", whom he keeps. He and Tod
have two beds in one room and each
keeps a whore - both in the same room.
They are out every night, - drunk with their
whores - it is open, notorious, bad!
and I intend to put a stop to it at once.
Cowles has just resigned & he and Claypool
both write me nice letters thanking me for my
confidence & friendship. I hope this unhappy
chapter is now finally ended -
