Bro John

To speak of paying you any money in my present financial embarrassment is entirely hopeless. When you were here you offered to assume an incumbrance of $3000. on my home premises and give me $500. and your account against me for a deed of same.
The present incumbrance is $4300. Now if you will take care of that and give me $500. and your account I will give you a deed to my home premises and to 160 acres of land within 2 1/2 miles of Lodge Pole a fine village on the UPRR in in




Cheyenne Co Neb. The land is said to be very fine and is clear of all incumbrance. My home is in good condition of repair and I would be pleased to continue to occupy it and I will send as rent $40. on the first of each month. This proposition must be accepted soon if at all and unless this or some such proposition is accepted soon you might as well put that note in your pipe and smoke it.
