Jan 28th 1912
Would you kindly ask Mr.Giddens as I have not his address, what settlement he made about the telephone while you had possession of this place? I had paid from April 1st/11 until Oct 1st/11 & on coming home found my name out of the book as a subscriber & yours in for [?] 21. I only got a refund from July 4th until Oct 1st amounting to $6.30. Has Mr. Giddens any record of it from the middle of May until July 4th.
I also wrote him about the house having been rented to you from Aug 1st 11 until Oct 1st 11 but I do not believe you cabled me for the house for Aug & part of Sept: it was decided you should have it until Sept 15th then you wanted to have it until about the election. I wrote consenting that you should have it until end of Sept. making two full months Aug and Sept. He probably has my letters to that effect. Also you assumed all responsibility for your servant. I am not charging damages done by children.
did not expect the servant would keep any in the house. but enclose a few of the larger items so that you will understand in case Mr.Giddens has not fully explained to you.
I am trying to have the telephone affair straightened out now. I would have written you before but did not know your address.
One month rent
