Auberjon people wanting acceptance....putting up million and half paying us quarter million cash. Situation here critical and discreditable. Auberjon in possession paying expenses but business stopped. Fighting outside intrigues disgusting them and others. They have now give us everything we asked and we can't drop them without scandal and danger too serious to be thought of."
