In regards to not waiting for promised collections on Mortgage interest, would state Banks have gone down on account of the so-called frozen assets; if I would depend on record via mails, (which they all get) we would be sunk too, with the aid of the law. In my last letter to you stated Sullivan. account was due Jan.22; was told to wait until 27th or 28th: later 30th. After waiting until about 5.30 Saturday, called on phone for information; was notified, about Tuesday February 2nd. What in hell can you do but take the baloney, and wait.
