Abstract

Thw work of organizing Companies for the promotion of this business is progressing very slowly, but at the same time in a satisfactory manner. Upon these Companies I depend to some extent for money with which to meet my payments. Having demonstrated to you by the payment of $120,000., that I intend to cary it through, I would like you to help me by extending the amount due on Dec. 15th to Feb. 15th, leaving the January payment stand as it is, and which I will meet at the due date.##A number of Sub-Companies are in the process of organization but they will not be completed until after the new year.##I have not yet been able to realize anything from the stock of this Company, as I deem it wiser to wait until most of the local Companies are formed, which would at once insure it a revenue, and enhance its value, than to attempt to promote it now.##Kindly let me hear from you by return mail.
