Mr. H. M. Gerrans,

Hotel Iroquois,

Buffalo, N. Y.

Dear Mr. Gerrans:

I enclose a copy of our Profit and Loss Account. You will see that it shows a net profit of $21530.43. We had a very good year last year. Our profit was even greater than I expected, but I do think we are doing better than we ever have.

I am not going into detail in this letter, regarding the various phases. I am quite sure that I will have to go to Chicago and I will drop down and go over the whole thing and have the statement complete. Unless something comes up that I don't know of now I will be in Buffalo in a couple of weeks, as I do think getting to Chicago I would like to come on and go over things with you and Mr. Rumsey.

Yours truly,
