Ausable Forks, NY: 1944.
1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, Ausable Forks, New York, August 14, 1944. Written to Arthur Price at Sears and Roebuck, offering the recipient a gift of artwork and attempting to go into the retail milk business, in part: "...I have a lot more things that I would gladly give you when, and not until, you come to see us; and you will get more items if you bring your charming wife along. I wonder if I may ask you to do me a great service. In addition to the activities listed on my letterhead, I am going into the retail milk business. I don't know where to get equipment for it for turning to the Sears, Roebuck catalog I find nothing but bottles listed. What I need is a bottler and capper, a bottle washer, and an aerator cooler. These should be of a size to handle up to six hundred quarts a day conveniently. Can't you just get your secretary to get in tough with your farm equipment purchasing department and send me names of the manufacturers that it would recommend my buying from?..." Two horizontal folds; light spotting on the left side, but still in very good condition.
