TranscriptFremont, Nebr., [Nebraska?]
May., 1900.

Mr. W. E. Baxter,
Derryvene, Moy, Ireland.

Dear Eddie: - With reference to this Bank
Stock, I am perfectly willing to give mother power
of attorney, or yourself if so desired. I do not
like the idea of giving those brokers in Dublin
absolute right over this money, as it would give
them a chance if they were so inclined to
appropriate it to their own use, and if so I would
be held accountable. If mother gives me a receipt
for this amount I will then give the brokers power
of attorney. This is the advice given my [me?] by
my lawyer, who has written to Peel our views on
this matter.
Now, I don't want you to think for a moment
that I am trying to postpone this matter for I have
no interest in it as far as I am concerned, but I
am willing to do what is legal and right.

Your affectionate brother,

Adam Baxter
