Abstract

Confidential U.H.P. ours of 19th recd There was no interest calculated on your Trust a/c. It is time but it was because it was not a closed a/c & I thought all you wanted was a memo of course your Stock a/c & the Trust a/c are treated as separately as Smith & [Jones?]; hence it was quite right to charge int on your stocka/c in the monthly statements as you have never authorized us to offset your debt balance in stock a/c-- I shall arrange the [entire?] matter with Sommerhoff & report tomorrow but I certainly suggest your make no point on it-- Remember you used [W&E?] at the death of [C.F.?] is about $40,00. No matter what you mgiht have said in engotiation of it if Renner and Sommerhoff had said the word the claim would have been pushed & certainly you did not wish that -- I riskedmy standing in the firm for you in that matter & through my effort alone you were saved & Renner & Simmerhoff induced to take my view in protecting you-- It was because of this on my part that I have felt very keenly something you have said & done & which I had no right to expect from you-- You better de;au tjos yours JCR
