"Dear Grandpa,
I received your letter and the money and the reason i have not answered is because I have not been able to see the tax collector from Harmony township yet as he stays at Bently and you can't see him without going there. On the upper quarter they have not got it divided on the tax book. And as the improvements are on the west half the taxes will be more on it than the other. It is $44.33 on the whole. Mr Berry said for you to pay about $27.00 and he would have the estate pay the rest and that that will be all right. The tax collector of Carthage township says the taxes on the lower quarter will be $40.00 as there is no improvement on it. that will make $67.00 in all. Don't think that I will ever fail to tend to any business you want me to do for you as Papa has done. I must close.
Your son (sic)
