Mr. David Eccles,
Ogden, Utah. Dear Sir:
I trust you will pardon me for taking the liberty in writing to you,
but I have been in sad circumstances since you went east with me
about three weeks ago, for my mother has been very ill, and I was forced to
send my sister from Los Angelos to Chicago to take care of her, it has
taken all my available cash on hand, and as they want to perform an oper=
ration on her it will take a good deal more then I can possible get to=
gether just now.
I would consider it a great personal favor if you could assist me in getting a loan of 150. dollars for 90. days at your Bank I would gladly pay 10 per cent for it. I would be able to pay 50. dollars per month and would make the first payment the 10th. of February, the balance the 10th of each month, I could give you my personal note, also would be willing to sign my salary over to you, any way to protect you as I con=sider this a business proposition, I trust that you will be able to see your way clear to grant me this favor, as it means a lot to me.
Very respectfully, Charles E Smith
c/o. 'The Union Depot Hotel, Ogden, Utah.
Wishing you and Family a Happy New Year and a Prosperous one.
