Apr. 1, 1912.
My Dear Miss Lathrop:
Last October I sent a check for $1500, as you will remember, to loan to a man by the name of Goldberg. I am simply writing you to ask what the prospects are for his paying back any part of this money.
I do not want to annoy you, and am merely seeking the information provided you can give it to me without much trouble.
Yours very truly,
