Hitt and Ware send this letter acknowledging receipt of money for books -- one payment of $915, and a second payment of $1,750. They are exceedingly grateful. In western Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Ohio, paper notes are below par and subject to discount, so the Book Concern continues to lose money on transactions with banks in these areas. There is nothing they can do about it. They have received word that Asbury (Bishop) is very ill. Abstract Number - 560
