Dear Mama,
	I arrived all safe and sound this a.m. Met Dora on train going to Winston. She inquired very particularly 
for you. I found upon my return her letter from Sloan and have written Mrs. Ray by this same mail to send him 
check $500.00.
	Also, I write her that Mr. Dickson will take $1000.00 of her *Gass Place money and if she sends you check, 
send for Johnnie and take his M. M. and Ike's note at 6% for 12 mos. and send to Mrs. Ray. 
	I enclose letter from Hall send him Admn check for amt if we have the policies. It is for Horn and Kistler 
house and policies as members just as he has it.
						Love to all, Aff, Frank
Monday night

I sent Mrs. Ray that $17.00 check
*Laura P. Ray's ledger shows J. A. Monroe rented her "Gass Place" at $5 per mo. during the year 1899.    Bridges
