Abstract

I saw the cashier of the Germania today in reference to that Boston note. The reason it has not gone through is that the Germania considers they have given us great (?) accommodation and that we should let up on these a little--such is the way in which the cashier expressed it. I believe the Boston note will go through all right on Tuesday next but there exists the feeling among members of the Disemet (?) Board and the other Bank officials that our line of discount has reached a high water mark and they apparently desire to await an ebb tide before accepting notes with the usual regularity. ##I sent yesterday to the United Co. to see what their vouchers would aggregate--the amount was only $600. I will send up a {illegible} tomorrow and advise you. ## This matter of discount is getting serious. I will try and have these statements ready for you upon your arrival Monday.
