Chér [sic] Maitre,
Perhaps you will furnish him with it - if he interests you.
The paper - the style & the handwriting remind me of the Tax Gatherers. - I always remember Byrons song "Never pay your taxes till your [sic] summoned - my [p. 2] Boys" and I act up to its immortal refrain.
F G Prange
I'm getting a lot of evidence & information together re lights & walls. Hope to put all right.
Your letter goes before the Board this week.
