roads have been assessed since I left Detroit, and if so, how much ? I would like also to know what dividends these roads will likely pay on the 1st of January. I have sold my stock to Callender, 1 the sale to take effect after the January assessments have been paid and the dividends called in.
I see from my Detroit paper that sporting is on the ascendent in your place and that some of the nags make good time. I should like very much to change back again to Detroit.
We are all quite well at this post but frozen up. Give my regards to Mrs. Grayson and John and to all my friends in your City.
