Ken & David brought me the sand and cement for the slabs. I wrote Nottingham redeeming the bonds which mature on June 30. I think we shall invest at better interest. We had to return the Bonds & write that we had receive the money. Irene witnessed them. We did not like sending the bonds & saying we had received the money which we have NOT.
