Dear Raymond:

I enclose usual monthly statement, without any credits for Abdelmaseh, Mc Cann. or Sullivan.

You will notice credit of $153.00 on return taxes ($5000.00) on Old Colony House. In my letter of February 29th, mentioned fact, that, $5000. in insurance will expire on June 14, 1932. Would like your opinion, whether or not, to renew?
[[left margin]][[?]] 75-80%

Henry was unable to pay any interest, 30th. or 31st. His ac[[strikethrough]]e[[/strikethrough]]o count [[account]] has notes for $1395.-$1250. with interest due $20.93-$20.92-$18.75. [[left margin]] Wow!

Have you any market advise[[advice]], such as, how to make $1,000,000.00 or even $1,000. Would like to be able to clean up about $6,000. to cover usual overhead, that is; Special agreement, Taxes, Wages etc. My friend at Honblowers. is noncommittal. Telephone closed at 110 1/4. Drug 48. While either one looks like a bargin[[bargain]], it seems with bum business, Congress and Senate activities, one would be shaking dice whitchever[[whichever]] way you went: buy or sell. [[left margin]] ?

Have had add-in for quite a few days, as to, Pear Street houses. with very few calls, here or at Henrys': Mostly shopping. Will state I am of opinion we will have to come down further for attraction; however there is not much demand, so, what in hell to do, is a big question. For instance: Sawyer. is letting two top floors of his building; with exception of large front room with mall room connected, to K. Of C. at $45.00 per month for one year. Complete, when work on other rooms are finished, would be $62.50 per month. Cost of remodeling must have been ple[[strikethrough]]a[[/strikethrough]]nty. The quarters are wonderful.

Understood from Mother, that you might be over last week, but, assume you must have finished your work in Hartford. in time to spend your Easter at home, at which place they must have been glad to see what you looked like.

Regards to all,

Your brother,
Bill
