cause of the delay after writing
many letters to him on the subject
and to threaten him with law proceedings
he then desired the notes to be
sent up to a friend of mine and
handed him an order on you and
lifted the notes which order I forwarded
to you on the 12th of April last
through A. Bell & Co. of New York and
expect to have it before this reaches
you amt [amount?] $30, I expect you have
rec'd the last dividend by this time

the last dividend, if paid, with this
