Dear Altrude


W. flournoy, President.

S. flournoy, Vice-President.
geo. w. mcclintoc, Secy. I received your two letters and the statements—and I am especially grateful for your “social” letter of Tuesday. If my poor efforts in your behalf have had a tendency to make the last few years, which I know have been hard, any easier for you I feel richly rewarded. The six hundred is appreciated and I accept it as you say—but I dont want you to deprive yourself or to ever feel that I would not have the same interest without it as with it. I have written the Trust Co to apply the $50000 to their loan. We did this once before you will recall. There is nothing else I can suggest now but when you get back I am going there and try to find out why the upkeep on those houses is so much. The net rent amounts to practically nothing now—The enclosed $12500 is your Interest to July 1st I wasn’t here or it would have been sent on time—There is nothing we can do about Black Mountain but hope for better days later on—I am delighted to know you think of stopping off here when you return and I would have asked you down here many times but for the fact that I know the Woods and Seals would take away all the pleasure. Will write you again soon—Devotedly Coz
