The anxiety and worry of my whereabouts must have caused you was no doubt quite a little. However, I assure you I have done everything mv power to get word to you since the beginning and have met with absolute failure. We sent a cable from Paris to Mrs. Harrison, hut I have fears that 11 never reached its destination. "I have hoped all the time that you have good faith In the idea that I can and have been able to cake care of myself. Up to the present moment of writing everything has gone very nicely. "Now, I suppose I should begin a long history of the why snd wherefore.

The police were summoned as the best art critics in Oaklund, but were forced to break into the home studio to view the extiibition. They found tho artist contemplating his work with a look of intense admiration. A large and over-ripe watermelon had l)oen used to decorate tho parlor. As the watermelon did not give the desired tones for a perfect modernist polychrome, he mixed a little yellow ochre with the fruit to obtain the desired effect. An impressionistic battle scene was obtained in the dining-room by the shattered crockery of the Velberg family. The police failed to understand the psychology of modern art as exemplified In Wal-berg and took him Into custody on a charge of drunkenness. Mrs. Walberg had become acenstomed to view his masterpieces with equanimity and refused, to prefer any charge against the artist, stating hat he was eccentric. in POLICE FORCE DISMISSED Carranza Substitutes Constitutional Soldiers for Duty in Capital.
