Southern Surety Company of New York
HOME OFFICE SURETY BONDS AND CASUALTY INSURANCE III JOHN STREET
WILLIAM E. BROOKS. AGENT NEW YORK CITY
2 MAIN STREET
FRAMINGHAM, MASS.,
February 29, 1932.
Dear Raymond:
Nothing special to talk about, excepting usual monthly statement is enclosed.

Usual checks amounting to $16.00 will be sent to Canada on March 1st: in order to keep up with the so called, "agreement": whatever that is; otherwise, would expect a letter from Uncle Archie. Did not receive any reply from letter of February 16th, as expected.
Other insurance on Old Colony will expire on June 14th, next; would you advise dropping it, or, renew? Understand my application for reduction in assessment of taxes; placing hotel value to $18,000. with all of land to $10,000.; has been agreed on by assessors, subject to agreement by selectmen, before abatement is given. If this goes through think we can save a bit on insurance by not renewing.

Money received from sale of Telephone, is deposited in various banks, as listed in statement. We have not-purchased any stock thus far. Closed on Telephone today was $126.1/8- Drug.$52.00 Drug is not a Massachusetts Corporation; therefore interest is taxable: but, is considered OK.

Am very sorry to hear about Ruth and Pete. being under the weather. Understand Mother received a letter from Ruth. today, and, assume the health of both is OK.

Am still trying to get money out of Sullivan. and Abdelmaseh. Sullivan. is still giving usual half-weekly alabi; next appointment is Wednesday P.M. by telephone.

Understand you may come to Hartford on business, and stop off in Framingham in meantime.

Will expect to see you soon,
Your brother,
Bill.
