  • Thank you for all your letters. Margaret - copy Boonville, New York Lucy - copy October 20, 1950 Leonard (Please show this to George) Dear George Your various letters have been received and I have waited a bit before answering them to hear from Lucy as to what the result was from her interview with Mrs. Criss. The last I hear, Mrs. Criss was away on vacation and Lucy was waiting for her return in order to find out more about her setup. But time is getting by and I am now going to give you such information as I have about the situation at this end. Then when I (we) hear further from Lucy, we will have all the information together. First, I want to acquaint you briefly with Mamma’s present financial condition. I realize that whatever we do will depend somewhat on that. As of this date, the situation stands thus: Savings acct., National Exchange Bank Boonville $2012.50 Checking acct. “ “ “ “ 526.41 Total cash assets $2538.91 This includes the check from Macmillan, July 1950 and the check recently received from Leonard. Macmillan check was $729.18. There will be no further check from them until July 1951. This acct. is in different bank from the one Roy and I use; so there is no chance of error or mixup. I hope to get a letter off soon in which I will try to tell the conditions that have forced me to ask that we be relieved of Mamma’s care here at 115 Schuyler this winter. Some of the reasons have to do with her condition and I will spare you the details in the interest of preserving your happy memories of Mamma. My own memories have been so scarred by my recent experiences that I will need quite some time to get over it. There are other reasons that make it seem advisable for her to be elsewhere this winter. The chief reason being her own welfare. She needs more expert care than I can possibly give her, particularly if she should be taken seriously
