Your telegram giving February results was received yesterday. I am very much pleased over it. The figures are better than I expected. I am wiring you tonight saying that report is highly satisfactory. Also to advise Whipple that we will write him regarding the K.C. property next week. This means when I get back.
We will go over the matter then and make a new proposition.
I think you all in the office are deserving of congratulations because of the good February business. I know you have done your share to contribute to the favorable showing and I want to thank you for your careful and conscientious work. That is what counts for success.
I gave Chicago a check today for $1000.00 and send my Cedar Rapids National check herewith to offset same.
As previously advised I will be in Chicago on Friday at 11 A.M. or so. If anything develops so you may wish to communicate with me, write or wire to the Chicago Club. I will probably go home at 10 A.M. Saturday morning arriving that afternoon.
