Jas. Goldie Bsq,
Okanagan Centre, B.C.
De&r Mr. Goldie:
I wrote you on Saturday re Bellevue Ranch, and to-day have your letter of
December 4th.
First,  I must thank you for seeing Lambert and jetting up the statement
he has given to you of the accounts.
Taking your letter in detail,  I notef the fallowing —      Instead of the
value of Oats being |225. as given to me When lira Vernon,I it now appears to be ^
$151#51f of which #128.81 went to Rainbow and|f32.|>0 to |aidman;    also the cow,^-^1
the value of which was given to me ^a^n fin Vernon as $12$.   is worth |70.     ^Xs it
is impossible for me to do anything with thij*  last item, I accept herewith your
offer to take it over for Rainbow at |70., jfreditiijg Bellevue Ranch account with
the amount.

Regarding the other Items of equipment,if they are^of any value to Rainbow,
and nothing can be allowed Belleyue fdr them,  I will take advantage of your offer       ->
to store then to Bellevue*s order.
Regarding Laidman, fl am

him and see" that "tfiis  is deposited,  I would appreciate it.
Re Coldstrfefcife Municipality, thiptf have already deposited with the Bank of
Commerce #11.80, the amount of their In^btedness to Bellevue Ranch. ^^
My reference to additional equipment purchased during the year, was
because I recalled an amount of $30. which Lambert had paid to a man named Gallon
for equipment purchased, which does not appear in the inventory.      I do not know at
this time whether there were any others, but this one I am certain of.
Regarding express on 4 boxes of apples to me, $10.80, the last thing you   y/
said to me when I  left you at  Okanagan Centre was that the Rainbow Ranch would pay
this, charging me with it, and I wish you would put it throu^i in this way.
Referring to statement of accounts receivable, the three items of — Jas.  Goldie Esq,
- 2 ~
December 11th,  1916.
W.  K. STlark # 9.00
Rev. Vance 12.00
C. Dart 1.75
I have placed in the hands of Messrs Reggie & DeBeck for collection.
Regarding statement of accounts payable,  I note the indebtedness to
Rainbow Ranch of $294.32. She amount you gave me when in Vernon was f245.63,
a difference of |48.69, and I assume the amount given to me in Vernon is correct,
as it was made up by you and Lambert together. I would therefore make the ^
account as follows «*«- ^ Ck^ *>
Due Rainbow, as per Goldie & Lambert • - — - - -$ 245.63 ^x^^7
*    Bellevue - Oats - - - - - ~ # 128.81 ,  i ^ y ^
Sale of cow ~ -  70.00        198.81 "v J^5 7
Balance due Rainbow - - - ~ $    46.82. <0.'
Please let me know if this is not correct, also whether you wish me to forward
you the money,  including $10.80 express on the apples, making a total of |57.62,
or whether you wish to  deduct this from my cash advances to Rainbow.
Yours very truly,
I .7iT
