Jas.  Goldie Esq,
Okanagan Centre, B.C.
Dear Mr. Goldie:
■ mmm  ■■■ mmmmmi—»o..«.•**m mm
Your letter of the 2nd inst received and I return herewith the
letter to you from Mr. E. Henderson, the Coldtsraam Municipal Clerk, dated
September 1st.   As the Municipality requires its "pound of flesh19 in the
matter of the taxes, I see no reason for departing from the agreement in regard to the fencing and ditching, about which there was certainly no misunderstanding on our part, and the matter is also clearly covered in the
agreement.    They had better complete the work as agreed, so please notify
them accordingly.    I presume you have stopped the &% interest charge on
this tax business by paying the account.    Please let me know khat amount
the taxes have been finally settled for.
I have recently received from Messrs Billings 4 Cochrane a
Honey Order for $17.90.    This represents $20. which they have collected
from 0. A. Thomas, from which they have deducted $2. as their commission and
100 exchange.     In my memorandum I have debited my cash advances to Bellevue with the sum of $17*90.   Will you therefore put through the necessary
entries, crediting the Thomas indebtedness with $20., and charging the Ranch
with $2.10, Billings A Cochrane9e commission and exchange?    You will also
have to make an entry deducting $17*90 from my cash advances.    I have
asked them in future to pay any sums they may collect on this account to my
credit in the Bank of Commerce at Vernon, and to advise me.
I have just received your letter of the 8th, and think all
cash receipts, whether for grain, fruit, or any other produce, should be got
in as soon as possible.    If you will attend to this and send me a list of
the unpaid vouchers, also what cash there is to take care of them, together
with any recommendations you may have regarding which of them should be settled, I will write you at once.    I am assuming that the tax charges have
been settled, and presume outstanding wages should be paid, but beyond this
it seems to me other things will have to wait.
Regarding the payment of $20. a month to Fisher to take care
of the Ranch and the stock, if this is the cheapest way out of it, I presume
it will have to be done, and authorise you to make the arrangement, if you see
Yours very truly,
