Dear Raymond:

Your letter of December 17th, was somewhat of a surprise; was very glad to hear that Mother arrived Mother arrived OK, although, a bit late. Will say

As to the health of your sister and brothers; Lill is positively in fine health, Henry and myself are as described.

About Henry: Would state that without having a little argument with him; understand that business is so wrotten that, he will give the rest a check to amount $600.00, plus another post dated for the same amount; All I can state otherwise, is; "When as and if issued". Will be pleased to receive something soon, as, my bank account is all shot.

Sent the boys in Canada, the cut check, but, have not received any orders from Archie, about being wrong with the distribution of his money.

We had the birthday as stated; We thank you.

Henry and myself were at a meeting of the Massachusetts Hotel Association, held at the Bradford Hotel ( formerly Elks Hotel.) Boston, on Monday. Pleanty of food and drinks were served before the dinner, Henry had pleanty of both, after which, we were served a fine New England Boiled Dinner, which didn't hurt my feelings any. Henry was not so good Tuesday. Met a Ralph C. Mahaney, who runs the Sterling Inn. He asked if we knew one Brooks from Framingham, who was an aviator? Stated that he went to Tech. but, was one year ahead of you.

Have received check amount of $75.00 for amount of S. O. of New Jersey. Was that why the extra dividend, on account of your purchase?

Best wishes to all

Your brother,

Bill
