Denver, Col. Aug 27___ 1877__
My Dear Mr Barnum
Yours 17th including one
from H.G. & D. to Taylor at hand. E.T. Nichols
has frequently described to you the change He and Tuttle
made in the frontage of the lots in Blk [block] 44, Greely
The change was made, but no record, it now seems
was made on the books of the County. Here is where
the trouble originates, John discovered this and asks
for less rent on the strength of it. H.G. & D say
his is legally holden for the rent. And I have
written them to called it in accordance with the
lease. John knew just what he was doing, when he
signed the lease & must abid [abide] by it. I hope you will
have no further annoyance from this matter.
Hope you have been benefited by you ocean
trip. Helen & Leila are both in splendid health.
The drought this summer has been the most
severe ever known here.
