My dear Mrs. Elliott:

     I notice that your niece, Mrs. W. G. McAdoo, has arrived at the Huntington and that there is a possibility of them locating in or around Pasadena.

     I would like to have called on Mr. and Mrs. McAdoo except for the fact that I feel, with all this publicity about their locating in this neighborhood, that there will be at least "57 varieties" of real estate brokers sitting around the doorstep and they are going to be greatly harassed by such a procedure.

     I do feel, however, that if they knew of some broker who they could feel would show them the class of property suitable for their needs and also that this service could be given without any obligation on their part, whether they purchased or not, it would make house-hunting a much easier and more pleasant task.

     With this thought in mind, I am taking the liberty of asking you if you would be good enough to recommend our office and the writer in particular, on the grounds that, as an old established firm, we are thoroughly qualifed to give the very best service possible, believing, as we do, that "he profits most who serves best."

With kind remembrance, believe me

Very truly yours,

Wm. Wilson

Chairman.
