Dear Sir:

Francis Campbell has recently departed this life. Is the appointment of an administrator necessary for the collecting of her share. Is it necessary to appoint a guardian in order to collect the minor's share, or will the money be paid to the father. What is the reason only one child of Frances Campbell was enrolled? She has three adult children. When and where will this money be paid? The heirs of Frances Campbell have employed us to collect their money for them, hence the foregoing inquires.

Very Truly Yours,
