Mr Jno Muir
Some time ago I sent Mr Walter Brown a statement of the indebtedness I hold against the house at 909 or 911 I forget which on [Sydia?] [illegible] in this City I have this day paid another special Tax Bill of $27.00 I stated to Mr Brown that if you would reduce the incumbrance to $5000. I arrange to have it carried for [your?] indefinitely I had a party a few days since who wanted to loan just that amount of money for 3 or 5 years. Now if you can make your arrangement so as to do that it will be satisfactory please address me until Sept. 1st at Chloride Sierra County New Mexico. as I will leave here day after tomorrow for that place if you cant do that state what you can do in the matter. Before another winter
cause the furnace will have to be put in better order if not a new one altogether. the statement I sent was up to July 17. I haven’t got the figure at hand but you can add $27. to that beside the interest from that date a Draft on N.Y. for the differences between these sums and the principle note will be credited [deleted words] to you when you [illegible] send the statement with it. I trust you can meet this proposition promptly as I don’t want the incumbrance to keep increasing
