J.R. Gordon Esq: Dear Sir: your notice of annual meeting of T.S.A.A just recieved but as it is now only about two hours to train time it will be absolutely impossible for me to be in Austin tomorrow, which I very much regret, with best wishes for a crowded meeting, Believe me, Yours very truly, A. A. Messer Dictated [signature]

J. Reilly Gordon Esq: Sec'y
I herewith send copy of report of Treasurer, which was sent to me by Mr. Stewart, having been left in his hands after last meeting. I also received a check for $95.00 from Herbert, which as you will see does not quite agree with the report, but still leaves me in a position to satisfy the most pressing creditors of the Ass'n and relieve it of its immediate necessities, which I will do, if you will have the enclosed accounts properly countersigned, according to the constitution.
P.S. There is also an old account against J. J. Kane, for $4.37 for gold badge, which is the only one remaining unpaid.
