[Daniel H. Muir]
Apr 21 1887
Dear Bro John
I presume you have wondered by this time why I had no sent that money. I could have sent part of it at any time but have been quite disappointed in getting the business settled up with tow of [those?] men to whom I sold one of them could not get his money on account of a slight error in the title of the property he sold and having to communicate with parties at a great distance The business has moved very slow but he thinks he can pay me
within a few days - but it has been a few days all the time_ however it will be soon or I will compel him to give up his Contract _ with the other man the trouble was a slight error in the title on the B. St. lots simply that the records do not show that there was a witness to one of the deeds it was between good parties and before one of our notaries here but we have been sending here and there to find the deed or get a new one and as the parties are far apart it had taken a good deal of time but is perfectly safe and will be all right very soon If however the man gets tired waiting and gives it up we will make money by it as everything is still advancing finely
