Houston, Tex. May 2/'96 Mr. R. E. Russell, Orange, Tex.
Dear Uncle Bob. - I suppose you received the letter I wrote you [crossed out] yester [end crossed out] Sunday. Since then I have visited three more stores and found price on articles you wanted varying very little. I enclose you the memorandums as I got them at the stores. If you decide on any of them and wish to buy through me just return the memorandum of the House you wish to buy of. I believe F. L. Hood's.
is the cheapest. I am a very poor judge of such mattres but will try my best to please you.
If you remember Albert Brown, the boy who went down to Victoria to work with me, he has just returned to Houston and you never saw such a change in anyone. He is looking much better than when I saw him last.
Several changes will soon take place in printing offices here, and it is not altogether improbably that I shall benefit by the changes. You need not be surprised if you hear of me becoming prosperous between this and next fall. Although nothing definite is settled I have reasons to believe that I will not be
forgotten in the changes that will transpire.
As the Bonding House is going to move soon and I do not know wether I will go with them or not I will ask you to address my letters to 212 San Jacinto Street.
Hoping this will find you and yours all well, I remain
Your Loving Nephew
