Dear Raymond:

Thanks for your letter of the 7th; same being written to allow all to read the letter.

As to Henry, would state all I can report is progress: he stated the he hopes to pay at least $1200.00. I didnt get the reaction expected, but from observation would say that business is very good there. "Ma house" always butts in, with the news that there isnt any business. The last time she informed Henry (in my presence-) that he spent too much money for improvements. Lill is mad as hell.

As to Mc Cann: from last months statement, you will notice that only fifty dollars was received. I called on the phone and was promised more money in a couple of weeks, which I presume should be about the 20th. If not received at that time would like permission to threaten foreclosure for a boost. Its hell when you can send your wife away for the summer and also sent your son to college, but, owe plenty, with a smile. I enclose copy of my last letter to the Mc Canns. which I would like returned. Done

I also enclose the usual quarterly liquidation sheet in payment of usual $600.00, which will be due on the 30th. Done.

The market is not so good, excepting telephone, which seems to be holding.

Took a flying trip to Canada last week. After having Bank of Montreal check on account, would state that balance with payment made yesterday is $201.89 Trust Company balance $910.82. Going down.

Will forward another statement of account as soon as tax valuation is received next month.

Regards to all,

your brother,

Bill.
