U. S. NAVAL RECEIVING STATION
Long Beach, New York
28 October 1942
First National Bank of Ketchikan,
Prior to my receipt of an official letter regarding my note which you hold, I paid the interest on this note.
Additional payments will be forthcoming as I am able to make them.
You are again informed that the reason of non-payment of this note is the sharp decrease in pay which I was willing to take to help my country. Until this wards ended and I can resume my former profession I can make only small and irregular payments.
I assure you that I am doing my best to settle all outstanding obligations.
