My dear Mr. Apperson:
When I was at Glens Falls yesterday I went with Mrs. M. O. Brown to see Mr. A. W. Sherman, Treasurer of the First National Bank, who is Mr. Coolidge’s son in law, to see if we could find out who was Mr. Coolidge’s executor. Much to our surprise Mr. Sherman said that his father in law had not left any will, but that he would probably be appointed one of the administrators of the estate. He knew nothing about the contract with Mr. Loomis, but when Mrs. Brown said that she had been told that Mr. Loomis wanted to put up a dance hall and moving picture theatre there, he remarked that he did not think that Mr. Loomis was such a darn fool as to do it, as it would be certain to interfere with the sales of the property. Mrs. Brown asked him to get a copy of the contract for her, but of course that cannot be done until the legal forms are complied with.
Mr. Coolidge reserved one lot on which he gave Mrs. Brown his note for $833.00 – one third of the value. That and the lot on the hill which Mr. Loomis’ father purchased are the only ones that have been sold.
As my brother and his wife are going to be with us this week I hope that you will come up on Sunday for dinner to meet them. It is not always safe to predict whether people will like each other but in this instance II do not feel that I am taking a great risk.
Very sincerely yours,
