February. As the dividend is payable so soon I have advised Mr. Combe not to sell until it is paid and I expect you will gain a few pounds by the short delay. Immediately after the dividend is paid however I shall make a point of seeing that the stock is sold for what it will bring and the proceeds remitted. I have written to Miss Anne Muir to the same effect.Mr. Combe has never mentioned having received a letter either from you or your sister but I brought the matter of the last half years dividend before him. I could make nothing of it however as he referred to the entries in his Minute Book as proof of the regularity of the payments. His co-Trustee the Revd. Mr. Buchananand I agree that no further notice should be taken of it.I saw Mrs. Lunam & her daughter a few days ago and am glad to say they are well. With best regardsI am, Yours trulyCharles Notman
