Dear Jim:-
Received your cable and was
very pleased to hear you are alive and
kicking. The very day your cable arrived
Mrs E. and I started out on an 800 mile
motor trip to Toronto, Lindsay, St Catharines
etc in our new Hupp Sedan. That delayed
complying with your request until our
return over a week later. The Monday
following our return I went up to Mrs
Maxwells and took a look at your maps
and books Seeing I could not carry the
maps in my car I went immediately
to The Windsor Truck & storage Co. Ltd
and gave them the order to get all you had
at Mrs Maxwells' and all you had here and
properly crate same for the long trip to Newtown-
Stewart. They made an excellent job of the
crating as I inspected it before allowing
them to ship same. The cartage, collecting books
and taking same to depot, the crating and
supplying crates and the prepaid freight to
the C.P.R. right to Newtown Stewart [Newtownstewart?]
amounted to thirty one 26/100 dollars ($31.26). I ordered
to-day. The Border Cities Star to be sent
to your address for one year from May 7,1927
to May 7,1928 and paid them ten dollars ($10)
for same. So you owe me Jimmy, forty one
dollars and twenty six cents($41.26). I have paid
both accounts and will forward you receipts if
you wish same as soon as I receive your
Plumbridge post office order, presuming that is
your easiest way to remit. So much for business.
How has the world been using Jimmy?
I have often wondered how things were going
since you reached your native soil. Mrs E. &
I have also wondered how Tom's wife and your
sister were. Remember us to them and your
McMaster fell on his feet lately. He
sold his home for $40000 and so is retiring
from teaching in June and taking his
superannuation. He and Mrs. Mac do not even
intend to keep house. They are going to board
or have rooms and get their meals out.
Things are about the same with us.
We were golfing this morning (Saturday) and
manage (sic) to make the usual rounds. On July
1st we sail again for the old land. I am conducting
a party for The Stratford Tourist Co. of New York.
and am of course taking Jess along. Jess' sister
the music teacher, is also going with us. The itinerary
is pretty good. I am enclosing a copy of same.
Now Jim I shall be very pleased to hear
what you are doing and all about things in
general when you reply. With best regards
Yours Sincerely
D. M. Eagle
