Dear Paul

I have just been thinking that it might help out our account with Noyes & Jackson if you could take the 100. Brazillian & the 100 Chilli & send back the 50 S.P. & the 50 Kennicott. This would reduce our line 100. & then too the Brazillian is more uncertain. I believe if this were done I would have no trouble handling it. I may not any how. You know whether you could make this change or not. If you can I would keep up the interest there & of course as quick as possible we would reduce. I have not been called for any more but may be if it keep [?]. Let me know by return mail what you think of this?
