my charter dues.

The balance for years 89/90 is correct.-

Please investigate the above and let me know.

It will be impossible for me to get to Fort Worth this year.

Yours Fraternally

O. Ruffini

I would like very much to meet with you all this year, and intended to do so, as I had missed the last few meetings.

I think the resignation of Mr. Dodson was wrong. also do I think, it was a matter to be investigated by our Executive Comm.

I mean the Ass. should not have accepted the resignation, without investigation, - as we could ill afford to loose[lose] so good a member. -

If I can manage to come, I shall certainly do so as another matter of about the same kind may come before the meeting.

Yours [?]

O. Ruffini
