Pittsburgh Aug 1948

Mr J. C. Clark
I have received your letter requesting me to attend the sale of Canal Lands on the first Sept at your City -- I had previously seen the Advertisement and determined to attend the sale -- If nothing occurs to prevent -- I shall leave here on the 25th going by the way of Cleveland & the Lakes and shall probably reach there before the sale commences If I do not -- however -- and any good bargains offer -- bid for the property and as I suppose you will have until the close of the sale to make the payment down --

I shall be in time if I should happen to get there after the 1st Sept.

I want to buy about $25,000. Don't buy anything that you can't, as you say, make 50 per cent on within the year

Remember me to Letitia.

Your Friend

S.I. McCrady
