Atlanta Ga. Jan 30, 1901
Mrs. Harry W. Young c/o Carroll House, City.

My dear Mrs. Young, at a meeting of the new church board last evening, I, as Secretary of the Board, was instructed to write you and express to you our sincerest and profoundest appreciation and thanks for the valuable assistance you have rendered us these past few months; that we are indeed grateful to you for what you have done for us and we really feel sorry because of our inability to remunerate you in a more substantial way than by our expression of thanks, but that owing to our financial condition at present we find we are utterly unable to do more; that we do not feel as though it would be fair to you or to ourselves to accept your services further until we are in a position to adequately compensate you for same.

Again thanking you on behalf of the Board and with best wishes, I am

Cordially yours
