Mr. Isaac White, Mabee Nova, Ont.
Dear Sir,
your favour of the 28 is to hand and noted. There was a committee called on me from Ontario this week and they went back to do more earnest work - Mr C. W. Kaufman is our advisory for your parts. he can recomend other advisory help if he wishes - and we will appoint them. I have quite a good line of the Drakes they only date to 1720 that was the date that John Drake married Magdalena Brower. I have a pretty straight line of William Drakes heirs a great many of them live in Canada - there is no specified time to close the work of record hunting. we will have to give the heirs time - Mr Kaufman of Villa Nova will call a meeting at his place soon and it will be well for the Drake heirs to go for you will have a better chance to get information from one another. I hope you will all go or send delegates and send in your lines - if you wish to gave your lines looked after the fee will be only $2.00. and your interests will be looked after - attend to your interests - Mr. Kaufman will inform you about the stock.
Respectfully,
Mrs Jennie Kepler
