Mr S 0 Chase,

Sanford.
Dear Syd:

Attended the Ingraham wedding last evening. The train was an
hour late in leaving here and also an hour late in leaving
StAugustine this morning. The wedding took place on the minute- if
anything a little ahead of schedule. Mr Ingraham telephoned over to
the Barcelonia that a team would call for us at 7:45. As it failed to
develop at that time, we telephoned the stable and, after a great
deal of trouble, secured an automobile which rushed us around there
just;.iri time to be the file closer at the tail-end of the church
and just able to see the bridal party and hear a portion of the cere-
mony. This was too bad as the Ingrahams had reserved us a place with
the family and were very much disappointed over the failure of the
team to connect. Mr Ingrahaam advised me that one team went com-
pletely back on him and this happened to be the one assigned to the
Barcelonia.

Kathleen looked very sweet and expressed her disappointment
at the absence of Uncle Syd and Aunt Laura. The church was packed
to the doors, but the company at the house was small and select -
among them being your old friend Carrie Hull Cassidey,who was also
disappointed as she wished to see her old beau. Claims she has not
set eyes on you for twenty years.

You were also inquired about by Mr and Mrs McCo:Lbs, Mrs
Spades, M-.. DoZoett,, Frarnk Dearing, Mr McGuire, Major McLain and
quite a number of the old guard, who were there in force.

Kathleen received a carload of presents with the value running
up into the thousands. What she will do with so much useless plunder
will be oneof the mysteries. A great deal of it will go into
storage and she will probably not see it again for the next ten or
fifteen years. They were all very much pleased with your donation and
the gifts from the family generally.

It made me rather sad to see Kathleen marry anybody as her
presence at home means so much to her father and mother.

James Ingraham was there. He is stationed at Palm Beach for
the Winter as the Dredging Company with which he is connected does
work in all parts of the country. He has just been transferred from
Cuba.
Both Mr and Mrs Ingraham expressed regret that you were not
able to be on hand and sent a great deal of love to you and Laura.
Tell Laura her cake was delicious. No one told me it was her cake until
the tail-end so I tookanother chance and live to tell the tale.

J. E Ingraham, Esq.,
St.Augustine,Fla.
Dear r. Ing ralham,
I have just wired you as follows:

"Telegram received last evening. Delighted to
hear the good news about Kathleen. Love and Bon-
gratulations to the bgby's parents and grandparents."--
which I confirm by these lines.
I don't know what more to say in reply, except to repeat
our gratification, especially that the baby is a girl. George
ought to feel very proud, for anyone can get a boy, but it
takes a man to get a girl, I am told.
Sincerely yours,

J.E Ingraham,Vioe Pres.,
St .Augustine ,fla.

Dear Sir;--

Herewith I return Plat #5 received with
your favor of 7th inst., showing "that part of Blocks 120 and
1279 situated between Palm Ave, and Avenue 0, Miami." Inasmuch

as the avenue parallel with Palm Ave. is noted on the plat as
SAvenue B, it strikes me that the use of the letter "0" is a
4-3"
.3 mistake. I assume that it is and that Avenue B is correct.
O
3 Am I right?

Please note the pencil changes I have made on the plat,
0o
P which you will observe are as follows4--
o. 1. Adding 9 ft, to the width of the Chapel lot, making

o it 55 ft, instead of 46, thus leaving two lots facing 12th St.
0o
PAH each 50 x 150.
0 2. Shortening the Ohapel lot to 150 ft.depth. This
oP
2 leaves two lots on Avenue B 451 ft.wide x 150 ft. deep, and
0g a strip 5 ft. wide between the east end of the north lot and

H 4the Manse lot.
4 0
* It also leaves one lot facing Palm Ave. 64 ft. x 150 ft.,
.m
* which ought to command albig price.

Please return the sketches and tell me what you think of

the changes I have suggested.
Enol. Yours truly //- ,-

At, Augustine, Florida,
November 25,1911.


To the Board of Trade,
City of St. Augustine,
Florida.
Gentlemen,--
I have heard recently a great deal about the com-
mercializing of &t. Augustine asflX ntet with interest the
views of some prominent gentlemen upon this subject, and I
beg to call attention to the situation of St. Augustine and
to make some suggestions in reference to it that may lead up
to a greater future. It is said that "opportunity knocks at
a man's door only once in his life:" a good many years ago
commercial opportunity ep.e4..iwi y knockedd at the door" of
t.'t .,Iugustine, anri the door was not opener, cornlrercialism went
to our nearest neighL.or, Jacksonville, knocked at the. door
there, *rm- it was opened Wte and Jdbksonville has become a
great city and a great mercantile center. It is too late now
for St. Augustine to ever attempt to cocipete with Jacksonville
for commerce, but it has other advantages, which if pushed,
would make of lit. Augustine a pl;4ce of such importance that
the comwmercialism of Jacksonvile would not be missed.
'.-hen many years ago the P'once de Leon was buil~ aid
thrown open to the world it established :'orida as a pleasure
resort. Up to that time it had been a resort for inva.idu
and health seekers to a great extent. Its advantages as a
horticultural or an agricultural state were almost urikno.,n.

To the St.Augustine
Board of Trade -2- November 23, 1911.



The opening of the Ponce de Leon established Florida as a

pleasure resort, and to that end I invite your attention

following out the lines that were laid down then.

If we make the most of the advantages that we have, St. August-

ins should be one of the most beautiful cities in the world

and noted for its attractions in the sumraer as well as in the

winter. I would suggest that our citizens unite in the effort

to beautify this old town. One of the most important things,

in my opinion, for tris purpose, is to build a new :Sea Wall

2uu' further out than the present one and extend it from

hlorth City to the Government reservation in the south end of

the city and up the San Sebastian Hiver to Bridge Street, the

space between the new wall and the old one to be filled in by

dredging from the channel and made into .a park and boulevard,

the park to be 125' wide, with a 50' street east of same, and

a 25' strip beyond that along the wall devoted to grass and

siaewalkq at intervals b ana-stands and shelters from sun and

rain can be established as mlay be desirable.

By making this wall and drive around the city to the Sebastian

river, and devoting the Uebastian River to cotaiiercial enter-

prizes, it will put them in touch with city without in nny way

retarding the beautification of the city itself.

At a point opposite the Plaza 1 would suggest the establish;.el

of a large municipal wharf of concrete, which should be without

ed exertion at all. I insist on her resting much,and she enjoys her

new electric --when the weather permits -- which is so much more com-

fortable than mny older car was.

Concerning the subject of the senate investigation,through the

ublic healthh jervicethe re-ort which was submitted by ir.Stimson,is

in Comite and has aroused some s nontaneous objections,if I ray judge

from several letters which I have received,for instance from Senator

-Kern .who characterizes the investigation a a a farce. I-y recent appeal

to omy friends,to aid me in securing a fair investigation to be conuct-

ed by coi-nietent men,has met with a remarl-ably cordial response and. the

senators were literally deluged with letters from all over the country.

This reminds me that i still must than you for having written to Sena-

tor Fletcher.

After a rather long time of waiting,,I believe that the matter will

at last be settled.,.t any rate,my son, left (the third or fourth ti-'e)

for Washington last night and will see Senator Lea and other senators

today. 'he intention is,as far as I can see,to 'introduce a new resolu-








rfon before the Senate,asking for a- new investigation in accordance with

i.i 'ichite. I gather that,to re lfse the report now in. Comite,would be

very apt io raise some unpleasant questions,and that it is the desire

to avoid this. .'hitever li a be the particular ways and means,I really

do not care much as long as I obtain an investigation which is made in

accordance with wht I c.jnsid:er fair an: right,anLi by men who are ca-

pable of judging of what they observe.

The fact that I received word of the favorable outcome of the

work in London,just at the payahological moment,undoubtedly influenced

the senators sor -'... t in their decision to support a resolution for

e new investigation;I arm,however,inforlt,. that this would have been sun-

.-orted even without this confirmation. Nevertheless the London ex er-

ience helns and is a welcome aid.

I do not know whether you have seen the report of the Public Health

Service to the Senate. The first portion is written in quite nonular

language and without technical details. Afier the matter has been sett-

led in the Senate,I shall- have something to say about this renort,and

about the manner in which the work,unon it is based,has been done;I e--

pect to publish my criticism of this work and report in proper time

and shall of course send you a co-ry of my discussion. For the -resent

I am mailing you another copy of the namnhlet which I mentioned in my

last,which Will give you much information on the subject.

In spite of the very great mental strain under which I- have been

for many months,and especially during the last two months,I am feeling

fairly well and am capable of doinS a greater amount of work than I have

done for some time. How long this j._y continue,I do not know and I shall

have to be careful not to overdo the matter.Once things are again run-

ning smoothly,l s-;ll feel so much betterr in -. mind,that it will natu-

rally rt-flee~t on .y7 rh'-sical condition.

James E. Ingraham, Esq.,

St. Augustine, / / -

Florida. ,

My dear Mr. Ingraham, ----

I have had your letter of January 15
for many weeks, hoping to get a chance to reply to it but
life moves so quickly and we have our hands so full of work
that I seldom have a minute to spare. We have nearly 600 wom-
en on our hands, most of them elderly widows and old maids,
all of them shaking in their boots every time they hear a
new rumor of trouble but as they are all householders and
apartment holders with small incomes, they feel they cannot
abandon everything and go home. They are in on us at the least
rumor and take all out time that does not go in work. What
with reports, letters, passports, registrations, etc., even
they get very little of our time. Our work has slacked up dur-
ing the past two days and I am taking advantage 6f this to re-
ply to my personal letters which have been lying in my desk
for many weeks. I may have answered yours before for any recol
election I have of it.but if I have, you will not mind a second
letter. I see by the home papers that business is improving
but on this side it is going down steadily. War loans, taxes,
and war supplies take all that one has and nobody spends a
cent unnecessarily. I cannot think with our President that we
will gain anything out of thw war. If we do, it is only tempo-
rary. Europe will need years to recover from it and after the
first burst of prosperity which will come with the resumption
of business in Europe, I expect to see a steady depression in
which America as well as Europe will share. Things will never
be the same here for years. The bitterness will last beyond ow
our time on earth. It is astounding how strong the feeling is
on both sides. Italy still wavers but the streets are full of
soldiers and the mills(flour) in possession of the Government.
We are living on war bread and love it. It is better thah the
ordinary white bread.
I hope the new arrival was a boy and that he will
be given your name. Kathleen is lucky to have children. I wish
we had them and I can assure you we would not be in Europe or
anywhere except at home. I am glad James is doing so well.
I do hope that Mrs. Ingraham and you are well and will keep
so. Mary and I although we are tired and need a rest, are both
well. We both send love to you all and hope again to see you
in Florida. With best wishes from us both, I am
Very sincerely you9s,

Dear Mr. BeardsleyJ~ P'.

S' *Mr, Coachman told me recently that there had been some
question on the matter in whiph he is vitally interestei'..and with

which I had a good deal to do during the management of the'Talia-
fero Campaign, aa*it fell to me to look after Mr, Parrott's in-

terest in this matter while he was abroad, and I would lik. to have

an opportunity of informing you, (and your Uo-trustees if desirable),

if you feel that there is any doubt as to the justice of TTrl Coach-
mants claim.
When MrParrott was abroad the matter of nominations came

up and I went to New York to see Mr, Flagler and ask if he would a-.
sist the Taliafero Campaign with funds, if Mr. Taliafero would con-

sent to run for re-nomination. This Mr* Flagler consented to do and
Mr. Taliafero entered the campaign.
Mr, D4 T, Gerow, who has been Postmaster in Jacksonville,

is also full~ conversant with this matter, as the arrangement with

Mr Taliafero was made in Mr. Gerow's office; Mr, Taliatero, his
brother, Mr6 Gerow and myself being present in Mr, Gerowe'aoffice

in Jacksonville after my return from New York and my interview with
Mr# Plagler,

Mr, Tliafero*s first primary was managed 'by r. T. D,

know, nor did he tell me what he did do, but in justice td Mr. Coach-

Mrs. H. H. Flagler,

My dear Mrs. Flagler:-

I shall shortly have the plans ready for the.build-
ings. I wrote yoa sometime ago that we had some tentative sketches

ready, when they were finished, however, they had to be altered con-

siderably to meet what I conceived to be your requirements. I

will now be prepared to show them to you before very long; what

shall I do about it?

Okeechobee is growing rapidly, Kenansville is doing well
and so is Chuluota. In spite of adverse condition due to the war

we have had a really unexpected business. I will have some pho-

tographs ready to send you before very long.

We are just now in quite a busy time, owing to the fact

that the City of St. Augustine have accepted a new form of Govern-
ment, called the Commission-hanager form of government, and the first
election for Officers is to take place the 14th. At Mr. Beardeley's

request I am running on the ticket for Commissioner, one of the three

to be elected who will have the affairs of the City in charge. I was

very adverse to doing this, but could not very well refuse his re*

quest. There are two tickets in the field and unfortunately I am on

both of them I may see my finish.
James' Wedding was a very pretty affair, being the second

one that has ever occurred in the Memorial Church. Dr* Bigler mar-
ried them and they received a great number of very beautiful gifts.
They were so pleased and touched with your gift and your telegram;

James was more proud of the telegram than with anything that he re-
ceived. They are now in California on their wedding tour and will
return and go to housekeeping in a flat near Kathleen's about the
first of the month.
By the way, little Maria is visiting US, has been here a

couple of weeks. The night after the Wedding she got off a joke
on me that is too good to keep. She had elected to sleep in my room,
in which there are tS' single bec.s* When I came up to bed she was
awake; after I had had my bath and came into my room to get into
bed,- sometime after I had gotten into bed, she said, "Grandpa,are
you awake?" I said "Yes", she said, "Grandpa, have you said your
prayers?", I said, "Yes", she said, "X didn't hear you", I said
"Darling I said them to myself", she thought a minute and said, "Well
I say mine to the Lord'" How is that for a three and a half year old
baby.

October 14, 1915.

Mr. J. E. Ingraham, Mayor,
St. Augustine, Florida.

Dear Mr. Ingraham::-

ORDINANCE ON TAXATION.
I find upon examination of the City Charter adopted June
7th, 1915, that "The rate as assessment shall be upon the valua-
tion of the taxable property in said city as set forth in the city
assessment roll; provided, that all taxes shall be uniform upon
the same classes or property within the corporate limits of the
city and that all property shall be assessed at its full cash
value. The term "Full Cash Value" as used herein shall be ccnstrued
to mean the price at which the property would sell if voluntarily
offered for sale by the owner thereof, upon such terms as like
property is usually sold, not at the price which might be realized
if sold at a forced sale." (Section 95)

"TAX APIPFPMFa T ROLL: All property within the citytaxable
for state purposes shall be assessed and listed for purr oses of
general taxation on the City Tax Assessment Rolls in the name of
the owner when the name of such owner is !,nown to the assessing
officer, but real property, the o-ner or owners of which are un-
known to the assessor shall be listed as the assessing officer
shall, from his best information, believe to be the names of the
owner or owners thereof,"etc. (Sec. 96)

"All property shall be assessed as of the first day of
January of the fiscal year for which such assessment is made."
(Sec. 97)

"PRELIMINARY AScFPSMFNT ROLL: Upon his preliminary ass-
essment roll the City Auditor and Clerk as ex-officia tax assessor,
shall indicate, in some convenient manner, the property subject to
taxation for each of the purposes for which taxation is authorized.
Said assessment roll shall be completed by the assessor and sub-
mitted to the Equalizing Board on the second Tuesday of November of
each year." (Seo.,98)

"CORRFCTTON OF APSF0o!rTTP: If the City Auditor and
Clerk, in his capacity as ex-offlcdo tax assessor, in nakinq his
assessments, shall discover that any land in the city was omitted
in the assessment roll of either or all of the three previous years,
or that any land was illegally sold for taxation and is then liable
to taxation, he shall assess such lands for the next fiscal year
and shall also assess the same separately for each such year or
years as may have been omitted or was illegally sold for taxes, at
the cash value thereof at the time, "etc. (Sec. 99)












"RETURNS: Al. persons, corporations or firms owning
property, whether real or personal, subject to taxation by the City
of St. Auguitine, shall be required to make return of the same
before the first day of September each year to the City Auditor and
Clerk in his capacity as ex-offio&o assessor of the city. Such
return shall be made upon and in conformity with blanks prepared
and to be supplied for such purpose through the office of the City
Auditor and Clerk, and such return shall contain a complete list
of all the property taxable by the city belonging to such person,
corporation or firm, for which such return is made, together with
the full cash value thereof, giving separately and intelligent des-
cription and the full cash value of each separate lot and parcel
of real property; which description and valuation thus returned
may be considered by the assessing officer in making assessments,
but he shall not be bound thereby. Should any person, corporation
or firm omit to make such return, as above required, the assessing
officer shall assess the property not thus returned in the name of
the owner, if the owner shall be known to him, and where the name
of the owner is not known to him, he may assess it in the name of
the supposed or reputed owner or occupant, or as belonging to an
unknown owner, and in no case where the real owner has failed to
make return of his property as herein required, shall the assess-
ment thereof be declared4alid or as not lawfully made, or the
enforced payment of taxes thereon be refused by reason of such
property being assessed otherwise than in the name of the real own-
er." (Sec. 100)

"PERSONAL PROPERTY: The City of Sto Augustine shall
have the right to tax as personal property, all wharves and water
terminals within the limits of the city and all buildings or struct-
ures owned by private individuals, corporations or firms and locat-
ed upon public lands, the use of which for private purposes has been
allowed such individuals, corporations or firms under revocable
license or other form of grant." (Sec. 108)

EQUALIZING BOARD.
"HOW COMPOSED: The Equalizing Board of the city shall
be composed of the members of the City Commission and the City Yana-
ger ar'd it shall meet on the third Tuesday in January of each year.
The City Auditor and Clerk shall be the clerk of such board and
shall keep an accurate record of all changes made in the valuation
of property and of all other proceedings of such board." (Sec.106)

"EQUALIZATION AND CORRfCTION OF APFpq'wTr'T ROLL: The
Equalizing Board shall have the right to change the valuation or
assessment of any real and personal property upon the roll by in-
creasing or decreasing the assessed valuation thereof as shall be
reasonable and just to render taxation uniform; provided, that the
valuation of any real or personal property, as returned by the
assessor shall not be increased to exceed twenty per cent without












first giving the owner or his agent notice of the intention of the
board to so increase it. Such notice shall be by personal service
upon the owner or agent or by leaving a oopy of the written notice
at his usual plao'c of business or last place of residence and shall
state therein the time when the board will be in session to act
upon the matter." (Sec. 110)
"OMISSIONS FROM APPF~e` NT ROLLS: The Equalizing Board
must place upon and add to the assessment roll, any property, real
or personal, subject to taxation, which has been omitted therefrom
by the owner or by the assessor and enter the same at such valua-
tion that it will bear an equal and just proportion of taxation."
(Sec. 111)

"SESSIONS TO BE OPEN: During the session of the Equal-
izing Board it shall be opne to the public. Any person, or his
attorney or agent feeling aggrieved by anything in the assessment
roll may apply to the Equalizing Board in person for the correct-
ion of alleged errors in listing .or -nPqualization in the value
of hse property, whether r:al or pereQgal, and the board may take
such action as it may deem junTim n3 proper in the premises." (Sec.
118)
"FAILURE TO RETURN PROPERTY FOR TAXATION: If the board
has reason to believe that any person has failed to return to the
assessor all property required by law to be returned or if any
person refuses to swear to the return which he has made, the board
may notify the person who has failed to make return or to swear to
same, requiring him to appear, and may examine such person on oath
in regard to the property in question and if such person so noti-
fied refuse to appear, the board may fix the valuation of the pro-
perty at such sum as is deemed just and proper. Any person feeling
aggrieved at any decision of the Equalizing Board in any matter
that he has called upon such board to correct, alter or change,
with reference to the listing or valuation of his own property, may
appeal to the Circuit Court. (Sec. 113)

found was yours, and I thank you from the bottom

of my heart for all the good wishes you send me.

Dear Mr. Ingraham: i


Have your letter of the 10th and first ,
let me tell you I am delighted to know you havegained in weight
and are much stronger.

Note what you say about selling certain J
Standard Oil stocks and investing in First Mortgage Notes of
the City of Miami. If you have any thought that Mr. Coolidge
is going to be elected, and I believe he is, I should say that
all of these stocks would show an advance in the market price
after election.

In regard to which you should sell when the
time comes. It would be difficult for me to advise you as the
ones that are most valuable give the least income. To my mind
the four big Standard Oil Companies- New Jersey, New York,
California and Indiana, to which I would add Vacuum Oil, are the
best of t# lot, and I think you should hold on to a part, if
not all, of these stocks. The others might be fold at the proper
time.

We have moved our Inspection Trip ahead this
year and are leaving for Florida on the 23rd of October. Will
start out from St. Augustine on Saturday the 25th. If you are
back in St. Augustine at that time or by the time we return,
which will be about the 31st of October, we can better discuss
this matter then than I can undertake to advise you in the pages
of a letter.

Very truly .yours,




WHB-M

Mr. J. E. Ingraham,
Bl.ckman Sanitarium,
172 Capitol Ave.,
Atlanta, Georgia.

Dear Mr. Ingraham:

Am in receipt of your favor of the 16th and am
gratified to learn of your continued improvement.

I feel sure Goolidge will be elected.

In your letter of October 10th you stated you
had an opportunity to take some i40,000 First Mortgage
"Gilt Edge" Miami Sity property at 8% interest.

Mr.Rimaff, president of the First National Bank,Miami,
was in the other day" and I talked with him about mortgages
on Miami real estate. It was his opinion that the "Gilt
Edge" mortgages would not yield 8fo. He seemed to think
that the percentage of amount loaned on mortgages yielding
8o was too near the valuation of the property and that you
could not get over 6-1/2 or 7/ on what is termed "gilt
Edge" security. It occurred to me that perhaps it might
not be amiss for you to inquiry, pretty thoroughly into
the matter before making an investment of the character
you speak of. You might inquiry through the Biscayne Bay
Trust Company as they are good authority on Miami Mortgages.
I only mention this to see that you are safe-guarded on
any investments you may make.

Sorry you will not be in St. Augustine at the time
we are there.

With kindest regards.


Very

Mr. T. B. Bennett, Tar Agent,

De r Sir:

Subject Lot 20, BZ ck 2, Eaca Ratone, J. E Ingraha .


Your letter cf June 9th receive:.

The above lot has not been accepted by the Board- of

County Commissioners as a road, consequently it has been properly

assessed, and will continue to be assessed until the Commissioners

take formal action. And unless the taxes now due thereon, it will

be sold and taxsale certificate issued. I regret the situation, but

there is no other way for me to ha@Mle it, so far as my part of it

is concerned. This general situation also applies to Lot 5 Block 2

and I would suggest that you have the matter taken up by the County

Commissioners and proper action gaken and some arrangement made to

pay the present tax, so as to avoid further complicationw.

Yours very truly,



Tax Collector.

According to our records in this office 'Lots

However, we do not find that these lots have ever been

t.* Augustine,

My dear Mr. Kenan, Jr

You, probably realize that there are a good many
rumors about and a deep interest in the matter of a successor to
Mr. Bloimt, and discussion on tis aubjet is quite natural. My
interest in the properties of thei estate prompts me to write you
on the subject, and I hope you will pardon me if it is a presump-,.
tion to do so. You must realize that no personal motive other
than a desire to benefit the properties and their owners is my
excuse.

These properties, lying almost wholly within this
State, wield an enormous influence industrially, politically and
socially, all over the whole State, asiwell as outside of the
State, and have a tremendous responsibility to bear to the public,
the welfare of very many people being closely identified with them. i
It seems to me that the man who succeeds Mrs Blount should not
only be well known, but be one of experience with the properties,
capable of handling large questions in a large way, and -one in
whom his associates have entire confidence, as well as the public,
and I therefore, with all respect, suggest that Mr. Wv H. Beardsley
be appointed as Trustee to succeed Mr. Blount on the Bingham estate
and Mr. Beolwith to suooeed Mr. Blount as Trustee of the Zstate of
Mr. Henry M. Flaglers

I am sure such action would be most welopme to a
very large proportion of those closely interested. I think Mr.
Beardsley's lo6g and intia-te connection with Mr. Flagler's af-
fairs, and his ability to handle the finances of the property, and
the fact that he practioally, during MrS* laglerts long illness in
1907, kept then together, entitles him to this position, as he has
most certainly earned it. Mr. Flagler told me himself that Mr.
Beardsley had 'saved his life' during that great panio, Mr.
Beokwith has always devoted himself loyally andiithevery ounce of
his ability and strength, wholly to his duty, and has unquestionably
handled the property in his charge with great success. He has
had, however, to bear the shook of many a brick bat, undeserved, and
but few bouqgetm .

If you should go outside the System for a successor
o t Mr, Blount you would unquestionably weaken the standing and the
influence of your associates, and your own influence 4sf well,
without any material gain to offset it. In Mr. Loftin you have a
man whose ability as a lawyer is very great and whose sound judgment
you can rely.on in every question involved, so that you don't need,

4. 9 -











sMr W, Kenan, Jr. Page #2 11-18-21.


it seems, to me, a lawyer on the Board, as long as you have him to
counsel you.

I realize I maq be making a great mistake to men-
tion this nstter to you. If so, my twenty-nine years of hard
servioe'in helping to build up these properties, is my only excuse.
I want to be a oonstructive -infueme in the affairs of the estate
as fully as I may, and as lon as s live, and I shall always do all
that I oan for you and yours.

Yours traly, ,

Dictated at Mamaroneck.

Mrs.Geo.W.Gibbs,

Gordon Hotel,

Waynesville, N.C.
Dear Kathleen,

I am very glad to acknowledge receipt of your welcome

letter of 10th inst, and to know that Maria is doing so wEll. I am disap-

pointed however, that your father does. not improve faster. I have had a

suspicion for a long time, that his stomach is the cause of a great deal of his

suffering, and I am wondering whether you hadn't better call his physician's

attention to this suggestion of mine. I hope you and the rest of you are well.

We are again having some intensely hot weather; yesterday and today in-

sufferable almost.

My health is about as usual. I still belong to the "stay-at-homes",

and am living a very placid, uneventful life. I do not want you to feel

under obligations to answer all my letters, but I want to say that I am always

very glad to hear from you.

Mrs-Flagler joins me in a message of kindest remembrances to your father,

and with love to you and your mother, I am,


Affectionately yours,
