⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My Dear Roscoe1;

The interest check received and credited on your note. Thank you, dear.

Can't we let the cemetary stones go until the fall—say November? I hope to be in much better health and spirits then, and I think I can do better here for you, handling the job through Overing3, of course. Wouldn't you prefer one stone for the two of them4? I know father prefered white marble—he disliked granite. Let me take a try in the Italian marble works here2 in the fall.

I will try to write you a clear business letter before I go away.

My love to you dear Willie
