From E. D. Knappen, dated April 2nd, 1902 - 

"Mrs. Nelson F. Burr, Secretary, Broadalbin, N. Y.

Dear Friend,--

In compliance with your favor request of March 20th I hand you herewith $1.25 Money Order for membership assessment to cover expenses of reunion of Class of '77.  You do not give the date of the event.  However, I regret to say that I shall probably not be able to attend.  So, if the matter is published in the local paper, I should be duly grateful to you for a copy of it.

I know you will have a grand old jollification - - and so may it be.  With warmest greetings and best wishes to all, I am,

Most truly yours,
E. D. Knappen
Address:  381 Third Street, Brooklyn, N. Y."

Note:  typed on letterhead of "The National Association of Automobile Manufacturers", 95 Liberty Street N. Y.  It lists E. D. Knappen as Secretary of the Association.

Postcard dated July 21, 1902 from L. A. Rowely, East Marion, L. I.  -

"Dear Mrs. Burr,
I have this day received a photo of the "Class of 1877".  Please give my thanks to whoever was kind enough to send it.
I am sorry it was so poorly taken as I fail to recognize some of the faces.
Very yours Truly, L. A. Rowley"
