[typewritten text: Wier [Wier] Boyd, Att'y [Attorney], Dahlonega, Ga. [Georgia] Dear Sir:_

Inclosed [Enclosed] I hand you herewith draft on New York for $50 to pay costs in re [concerning] the Exter claim which you are now preparing to be carried to the Supreme Court. I trust you will not have any trouble in completing everything and that you will be able to get someone to go on our bond. You remember that it was suggested that Mr. Parker, bondsman for Mr. Exter, might be sufficient bondsman for us, at anyrate [any rate] your son, Mr. M. G. Boyd, stated that he would try and get him to go on the bond.

By the way, I would like to have you get a receipt from Mr. Wellborn for taking down the evidence; I gave the money ($15) to Mr. M. G. Boyd, and I would like a receipt which I could file away among my vouchers; it is possible that Mr. M. G. B., has gotten the receipt but failed to send it.


Yours very truly,]
[Signed] [written text: F. E. Dickie
Sec [Secretary] ]
