My dear Mr. Apperson,
I enclose my check for $6.87 according to your memorandum of Alex’s “Bob”. I do hope you have not cheated yourself. The pleasure and the experience were worth many times that amount.
Hoping that you will continue to drop in on us frequently, for that was one of the pleasures the rest of us derived from the building of the Bob, and with many thanks for all the trouble you have taken with the boy and all the manual training you have given him. Believe me,
