1929 A.B. Moore to J.S. Hunt, re: Sale of Hodge-Hunt to Advance

Mch 30th 1929

Dear John,

Inclosed find note of 550000 to [Mr. J. P Lester] of Stephens, Ark. Also find letter to Hodge Hunt Lbr Co. authorizing the transfer of my Advance Bag & Paper Co’s preferred stock to you. Thought possibly this would be the best way to handle the transfer.

 

I do hope Mr. Evans will buy the stock little later on and you may make the deal with him. Would like to get [par], but if you think best would discuss it a little.

Will have little more than 50% oak in this timber [am] estimating, and think can ship enough of 2” wagon oak, this fall to pay Mr. Lester possibly 150000 or maybe little more on this note.

Am going to take out a short term insurance policy for 12,00000 in case anything might happen to me during the cutting of this timber, and if see [f--] can drop it another year. Am going to do this in order to be safe.

John, I can never tell you how much I appreciate what you are doing for me.

Yours,

Albert
