The $1000 have arrived all right. I shall try and give it a good circulation and pay it out in small quantities. Have marked it all on the back with a stamp.

Sent you the note a day or two since.

heretofore given my reasons. The main object, as I have stated, is the one is improved property the other not. I will give you a good trade and you can hold that Bluff property better than myself. Make me a proposition and if we can agree, I will put the Mortgage on the Omaha property. The buildings on the Omaha property have cost near $1500. and the lot would not bring over $600. Sixty six feet West of the office in the same block, 44 ft sold last week for $1000. Building can be done cheaper now, than when we built.

I should like to trade or change in some way, provided

you can feel satisfied so to do. I shall write father in a day or two

Yours truly

P.S. I shall be very careful with that money and shall not loan it, unless it is sure pay, Shall keep it in the safe, sooner than take chance, I shall pay interest and return principal. Still I think I shall make something by its use, enought to pay me.
