Mr Bronson Rumsey,

Buffalo, N. Y.

Dear Sir

Can you tell me how many acres of land is included in the Cody Townsite, & number of acres adjoining the Town now being managed by the Lincoln Land Co. How much has been paid to you as trustee for the 7 owners of the 1/2 interest, & how much, if any, is now in your hands as trustee?

I wish to get some idea of the extent of this property, and the value of the interest held by Mr. Alger. Is there any incumbrance, or condition , of any kind, attaching to Mr. Alger's interest, and how is this interest evidenced?

In your judgment what is the value of the 1/7 of 1/2 interest owned by the Alger Estate?

Thanking you for your trouble, and assistance in this matter.

I am Very Truly Yours

B. F. Perkins

administrator Estate H. C. Alger deceased.
