Title

Correspondence between Ed and "Papa Oscar".

Description

These first two letters, written by Ed to "Papa" Oscar Goldsmith detail paying off land notes to get money for possible "urgent purpose[s]". The second letter discusses a charge Ed put in the ledger and the hope to "improve things" with his business. The next letter is also from Ed. In this letter, Ed discloses information regarding his lack of a permanent place and inquires if he should sell the property on Clinton Street and his car. The final two letters are written by an unknown author, but contain information from Oscar to Ed in reponse to Ed's letters. The letters advise Ed not to sell the house on Clinton Street as it would sell for less than he owes on it at the time, but does advise to sell his car. It also tells of payments made by Oscar at the request of Ed. It discloses details about Ed's financial situation. The second letter regards a dividend Ed received from the Wonderfield Oil Co. along with a note that "Papa" is feeling better.
