Cook writes, in part, “Mr. Fredricks will be home on the 23rd and I hope you will do all you can before that timeas he has written me often about that matter and I have done the best I could to make matters easy for you. The whole amt. you have paid so far is on a/c $200.00. interest 30.00. $230.00. The interest for 3 months is $35. His partner tried hard to prevent his loaning the money and it was only owing to my urgent request that he did loan it so that I feel as sorry as you do about the matter … Please write me at once and at least try and pay up the interest due. You know that I will do all I can to make things easy with my uncle for you. He will arrive here on the 23d…” Penned in purple ink in an unknown hand on third page: “sent $200 Dec 5th.” Signed at the conclusion "E.L. Cook."
