Phila’ June 5th 91

My Dear Brother John:-

Herewith I hand you Mr Corys letter which just now came. I find that the Interest and taxes have ran up more rapidly than I had thought but I owe you a large sum for rent which I shall pay for all of the time which you have owned it besides the notes which I got in the trade just as soon as I possibly can but I can do nothing now for money



2 J.M.

is so very hard to get here now owing to Bauk failures and other disturbing eliments just now, We had the house thoroughly fixed up last fall so the property is in good shape, and rented to a first class tenant, though the rent is not as much as I wish it were, but [times?] are so dull in Kansas City that nothing will now bring full value.

Hastily yours

Walter Brown
