Dear Miss Augustine,
As per your request, I have made inquires about the intention of Mr. Craig of Number 10 Maple Lane as it relates to purchase of the property. While he did not dismiss the notion, he relayed that he had not seriously considered the purchase. I explained, in detail, of your plan to sell the estate. I informed him that I have another prospect and would like to proceed with negotiations after January 10th. He agreed to make his decision by that time and notify me of his decision.
I hope your time at Herald House has been comforting to your Dear Cousin Rosemary Willoby. I am well acquainted with Mr. Willoby senior. We are members of the same club. A fine gentleman. I understand that the second son, Michael, will return from the continent for the Christmas Holidays. I am certain his dear parents will be overjoyed to share his company. He has been gone since the untimely death of his brother Roland, to grieve privately I am told.
I presume the fund transfer was adequate.
Mr. Wilbur Sullivan, solicitor
