Dear Brother1;

The papers regarding the oil shares4 have been received, and will go into my safe deposit box the very first time I go to bank. This is my first hour up–and–dressed after my third attack of bronchitis this winter. That accounts for my unsteady write–of–hand.

Thank you for explaining it all so kindly to your stupid sister, dear.

Lovingly Willie
Mr. R. C. Cather,1 First Savings Bank of Colusa, Colusa,3 California. NEW YORK, N. Y.2 APR 19 1939 10 PM Personal
