Letter from James Clark, Attorney at Law, Ellicott City, MD, February 13, 1920. to Mr. Archie C. Hartsock, Lisbon Maryland.
Dear Mr. Hartsock:
I enclose you herewith deed from you and Mrs. Hartsock to Fulton R. and Burnice B. Slagle, which you requested me to draw a few days ago. I think you will find this deed in proper shape. I have so drawn the deed that is should be executed before and Justice of the Peace, as I presumed that would be more convenient for you. In executing said deed, you and Mrs. Hartsock will please sign your names exactly as they are written therein. According to my recollections, the purchase price of this property was $10000.00, and if that is correct, you will have to have ten dollars worth of Internal Revenue stamps on the deed. I would like to see the deed before it is recorded, and make sure that it is properly executed. I am also returning the papers which you left with me. Yours very truly, James Clark
JC/MS.
