1899 Letter From Neill W. Ray to Sister-In-Law
Contributed by Kathleen Haynes      Contact Myrtle Bridges   May 28, 2008

Attorney and Counsellor at Law,
Fayetterville, N.C.                                                         May 1, 1899

Dear Sister-in-Law,
	Yours of the 29th is received. Let the papers remain until we come up, which I hope we can do during 
the season of 1899. I hope that Ervin can succeed with the injunctive order. I think it adviseable to 
improve the store, in order to secure a renter, Whatever you think best, I will concur in. I wish you 
much success with Cobb.
	This is the week of our criminal court and next week and the week following is our regular spring 
term of the Superior Court. I am trying to arrange my cases (so that?) I can go for a couple of days and be
at the Charlston reunion. There about last of May or first of June I want you to wo with us to Gettysburg 
etc., and let it be my treat. Will you? 
										Yours truly
  										N.W. Ray
