My dear Sir
I have recd. your check for the balance of the Pew & beg you to accept my sincere thanks for your friendly attention in the matter. I have not to my knowledge ever had a certificate or evidence of the transfer of the Pew to me.
If when I get settled I will search my papers but have no idea of finding it.
