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.
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.

That any member who is in arrears for the year 1889, or previous years, be notified that unless the same are paid within thirty days from date of notice he will stand suspended on resoluton of the Executive Committee.
