Dear Mr. Richards:
Thank you for your letter of January 9th. and I would say that
you have done quite well to be able to gather in ninety banks in five
years collecting today.
As for myself I have added but one - a "High Hat Jolly Nigger"
during the past year; but it matters little to me even if I should get
no more, as I am able to be satisfied with the collection I have.
This letter is being written while in bed where I have been for
the past six weeks on account of torn ligaments from my left knee, but I
expect to be out shortly.
It will indeed be a pleasure to show you the collection of banks
any time you should be in Fostoria; the main pleasure of having the
banks today is showing them to my friends.
February 4th. 1952.
