Charles Manly Esq

Secretary of the Board of Trustees of University of N.C.

Dear Sir

Enclosed is a check from Washington Bank in the Branch of Cape Fear at Raleigh for $192 & Cash $100 which is the amount due the Trustees by me except $1.95 which stands to their credit on my books. Below you will find a statement. I had not collected all the debts due R. B. Robason's estate but in my account I have assumed them so as to settle the whole at this time. This with the amount remitted which I received from Arch.d Parker is all that I have collected for the Trustees this year.

Please acknowledge the receipt

Very respectfully yrs.

Asa Biggs
