Title

Correspondence between Edgar Weil and Oscar Goldsmith, and Oscar Goldsmith and Harry.

Description

In this letter, Edgar Weil gives Goldsmith information regarding the sale of his mother's stocks in the Chelten Hills Cemetery Company, as Goldsmith is unable to attend and will need a proxy, and the reasoning behind the call to change the per value of the stock. Weil states that the Company does not earn any return for their stocks and so he is selling the stocks for a low price per share due to the fact that "nobody will ever get a cent for these holdings." The second document is a letter from Oscar requesting a proxy for the meeting, and Harry's response to be Oscar's proxy. The final documents are signed and blank contracts appointing attorneys to vote for the decrease in per value of the capital stocks at the stockholders meeter.
