Abstract

Yours 2nd rec'd. I see there is a misunderstanding. I wanted to get the company organized so that it could do business and issue its ciruculars, catalogues, do advertizing, solicit buisness & c. I have been waiting patiently for you to come, wishing to have you so that the property could be turned over at proper valuation, capital stock be paid up etc., but seein geach day that the probability of your coming was as far off as ever, I concluded that we could organize elect officers & c, as has been u nderstood between us, without you, and leave the important matter of turning over the property till you might choose to come. ## The coporation has been incorporated & in the articles of incorporation, the Directors for first year and the amount of capital stock and number of shares have been fixeed & determined. It is highly important the the company should be in shape to do & solicit business, and so I concluded that we would have an organization meeting and sent the minutes to Mr. Johnson for his signature. I now enclose them to you. The name of the Company will not be changed of course and its details are subject to proper change if necessary at any time under the laws governing such things. I have sent Reiff another $1,000 making $3,000 in all and have his acknowledgement that he is well satisfied. ## To recur to the matter of these minutes, I will be obliged if you will insert your name & signthem so that this much will be off my mind." [PS] "Chestnut When are you coming?"
