Dear Birdie & Julius
You know dear Julius men in Business have most work enough, so that I can be excused from privat correspondenz especially yet as dear Carrie keeps you all posted on what is going on in familie affairs.
I will therefore at once go over to what I wish. I suppose you dear Julius know that I gave after the death of dear Pa [?] to cousin Henry power of attorney. The first division was by him regulated promptly. I know however that a second division has taken place & although I wrote to Cousin Harry more than ½ year ago to send the part I have to receive as Bella’s share. I am today without any answer. I must say I find this way of attenting such matters by no means correct. Dear Carrie also wrote her [? Affair]. Harris gave no answer. I therefore ask you to be kind enough to look into this settlement & tell Harris to forward to me what to me belongs.
