Paris Feb 17th/1904

Messrs Geo. Foster + Sons

Brantford

Dear Sirs,

Mr. McCosh left home on

Friday afternoon for Kincardine and as yet

I have not heard from him although he

promised to write to me on Monday.

I have come to the conclusion that the

roads are blocked again and that

the mails cannot be forwarded.

Today I received an [order] for your [illegible]

which I think ought to reach you before

the usual time for Mr. McCosh to come

home. Wishing you will not think me

for officious. I am Yours Sincerely

L. McCosh
