Gen. Jno. E. Roller: -

Dear Sir.:- I have just made the last payment on my property & need a little money to meet some other small claims I have - Will you please loan me $150 dollars for a while? I am willing to pay you 8% in order to get the use of the same. I will give my father as security. Please let me hear by tomorrow's mail.

Very truly, J. J. Lincoln.
