PRESIDENT'S OFFICE Greensboro, N. C., 5/23rd, 1900.

Mr. W. T. Farrow,

Washington, N. C.

My dear Sir & Friend: -

Mr. Odell handed me your kind favor of the 21st inst., to answer, as he was a great loss to know what the trouble was. I am equally at a loss to know, as our Book-keeper charged for the time Miss Mamie was here, and there must be some error in the bill. You will notice on the bill is printed that any error will be cheerfully corrected. For these circumstances I thought it best to enclose check and have you state just what the trouble is and let us know just what you consider right treatment, as we have no desire to do anything else in the world. We could not think of accepting your check when you paid it under protest, as is evident from your letter. We decidedly prefer to have your good will to any amount of money, and my personal friendship for you and your family would cause me to do anything in my power to have you perfectly satisfied. I am sorry to learn that you have been sick, and I trust you have fully recovered, and also hope that Miss Mamie is improving, and that she will soon be entirely well.

With my best wishes for yourself and family, I am,

Cordially yours,

D. Peacock
