The Household Journal (Established 1887) Household Journal Building S.E. Cor. Filbert and Ninth Sts. Philadelphia
Elmer S. Potter, Publisher
Mrs. Conkling, Chester, N.Y.
Dear Madam:- Replying to your letter of March 1st we did give you the land absolutely free, and it did not cost you a penny, the $1.00 paying for the subscription to our Journal. It is of course understood by everybody purchasing property, no matter how valuable, it may be, that the making of the deed is to be paid for, and certainly no one would object to pay for the deed after having the property given to them absolutely free. The regular charge for making a deed is $3.00 in New Jersey but we had an understanding with Mr. Frazier the he charge only $1.25 for the deed and we got no part of this money. We think if you will consider a moment you will decide we do exactly as we say we do.
Very truly yours, Potter
