My dear M:-
I am sorry to hear of your situation at “the Lake”. Of course I am going to do for you anything you have done. I should feel very much hurt to have you go elsewhere for anything I could give you, and I will try to give it to you quickly if you will decide on just what you want to do.
I had thought lately a number of times of running up to see you and I will gladly come next week to stay a few days until we can settle your affairs. I go to Rochester and Buffalo Sunday night to return here Thursday night or Friday morning and I could leave here Friday night for Minneapolis and stay until I had you “fixed up” to your satisfaction.
I dislike to think of your being badly cut up again in your building schemes. Perhaps we will have to draw lots and cast out Jonah. I fear I am Jonah-but I'll stick to you until I get you out of trouble. Your family can have anything I’ve got if they want it.
With love to you all from cj.

Dear cj; J;
I’ll be elsewhere but come. This trouble is yours; a great whale of it. All in the Lake.
Not here, but come. Fuck. It’s a leviathan of a thing;
if you have it, if; if you have it it’s
A clear PVC curtain is installed over the doorway connecting the gallery and office at Prairie. This object is not an artwork.
