Abstract

On Saturday pm{?}, the following cable received from Gouraud: "Gilliland cable numbers, English patent more telephones, power attorney quick." I wired you to instruct me what to do in the matter. ##I enclose B/L for the balance of the pictures. The B/L for copying press will doubtless go forward tomorrow on Wednesday. I have given instructions for a New York Daily Paper to be sent you every day. ##I am to get a check for Insurance tomorrow. Today, I am getting out the amount due you in the insurance. It amounts to $2,956.25{?} without the amount due you on Bergmann's account}, which I shall not know till tomorrow, but that will add several hundred dollars, probably. The above amount includes the $1900 for furniture. ##From that amount coming to you , there will have to be deducted the sum which now stands against you on the Florida Books, $1,458.42, so that I think about $1800 will have to be put into your bank account to strike a balance. As soon as I know the amount, I shall pay the money to the Bank of Metropolis and send you a statement.
