My dear Mr Marvin
Your letter just rec'd. Will you kindly embody the same into two copies of contract & have Mr Keene sign each copy & forward same to me, when my sister will sign both copies & return one to Mr Keene, & keep the other here.
Have contract made out to Jane Addams. You have description of the land, known as "Jane Addams Stephenson Co Lands." I would do it, but you seem in a hurry to have this answer.
In the meantime, if you & Mr Keene can decide to give my sister $2000.00 Twenty Thousand dollars cash now (you to get commission from Mr Keene) We will send you deed for the land instead of lease contract. [page 2]
In my speaking to you (as agent) I neglected to say that of course we would expect you to attend to paying the taxes.
With kindest & best wishes to Mrs Marvin & yourself I am Cordially --
S. Alice Haldeman.
