Mr. John T Stark Orange, Texas
SirOn the 25th day of last Feb. you wrote a letter to G. W. Van Etten of this place, in which you desired him to go before a notary & give his deposition in the case of Russell et al vs Flelston et al pending in the U. S. court of Galveston. You did not send any money but desired the matter attended to act once you said in the letter "and notify me the amount of your notary fees and I will remit at once" I attended to the matter sir, at once, & refused to send the deposition C.O.D. as was suggested to me. I acted upon the supposition that you were a gentleman - of your word - & would not cheat a man out of so small an amount. Since that time I have written you two letters prior to this one wich you never not been kind enough to favor me with a reply

I hope sir that you will send me what you owe me without further delay. If you do not I will take it upon myself to see that the judge of the U.S. Court at Galveston is informed of your methods of doing business. I dislike to speak to you in such tones but your conduct, whether the result of thoughtlessness or of intention has placed you in such a position as to justify it on my part. If I do not hear from you soon I will take some action.
I am Yours truly Geo. [George] W. Williams

Mr. R. E. McFarland Bleakwood. Tex. Dear Sir: Your favor of the 9th [illegible] received. We have made such an examiniation of the records as we could find time to do but have not been successful in finding any real estate in the name of McFarland and only two [illegible] which [illegible] passed through that name. It seems doubtful if M.F. ever had any record title for any lots in Lexington other than the two mentioned. If you wish a more thorough search made send $5.00 to pay the recorder and we will have him go through the records carefully. Your &c C. L. & H. E. Jewett
