I have many kindnesses to thank you for and at some later time, when I am a little
more vigorous, I will write you a personal letter. I am now sending you a copy of
letter to Mr. Scheer3, the lawyer who makes
out my income tax return, and I have marked the passage which I hope you will
notice. I have not yet cashed the checks you sent me for Ocean Front Oil Company4 royalties for December and January
because a personal check of that kind complicates my bookkeeping, which I strive to
simplify. As you will see by the enclosed letter, my checks for interest and
dividends are never sent to my home
address5, but are sent to me in care of the Chase National Bank, Park
Avenue & 60th Street. The bank sends me an "Advice of Credit" when such checks
are received and deposited to my account. These advices I file as soon as they
arrive. This is the only record I need or have to keep. The figures taken from these
advices are used by the lawyer in the preparation of my income tax return. This
saves me a system of bookkeeping which would take a good deal of time - and which
would probably be very incorrect. I am very stupid about figures, due, probably, to
training my mind in another direction
., or just to natural
P.S. Lately I have had several delightful visits with Helen Louise6. I grow more fond of her all the time.
