Scope and Content

Traubel thanks Sixsmith for his prompt note and refers to their continuing fight [presumably for the Whitman cause]. He inquires whether Sixsmith has ever come into contact with Ed Innes [brother of William], who is working with Traubel on the recovery of the Conservator [which seems to have come near financial collapse], and mentions that he wrote to Sixsmith in the hope that he would give them some assistance. He is sending some American newspapers and refers to the current crises in Venezuela and the Transvaal.
