I thought I would drop you a line as regards the hour of the sale of the Stone Estate. Almost every real estate sale and farm sale is at 11 o'clock. It seems to suit the people better than at 12. I am only suggesting this, Mr. Macdonald, in the interest of the sale. If you thought of changing the hour I will have a good local placed prominently in the Daily and Weekly Mercury free of charge to you as I have spoken to the Mercury Office people about it. If you think it advisable to change you might please drop them a card or myself.
Respectfully, Thomas Ingram".
McIntosh, James Innes
