Martinez, May 31, 1897.Dear Sister Mary.Im glad to hear you got your money safely. I have not yet heard from the Portage three but expect to tomorrow then all will be served but Dan's whose address I was not sure of, & his draft will go in a day or two. Then a big job will be off my hands. I think you should write a note of thanks to Charles Notman Esq Dunbar, Scotland, for the highly satisfactory manner in which he settled the Trust, & requesting him to convey your thanks to the Trustees for their long good & faithful services, You might also send a pound or two to Trustee Buchanan who is minister of Grandfathers old Kirk. only if you feel like it But send nothing to Comb He is overpaid already. The lawyer Mr. Notman is also paid, but Mr Buchanan not a penny
