[Monty is three years out of law school and has just closed down his budding law practice. His college debts are a hurdle now exacerbated by a military obligation. We may learn more in future letters.]
May 30, 1917 [envelope postmark]
In writing you Sunday I forgot to mention the fact that I will have to renew before next Tuesday note at the Central National which you will remember endorsing for me when in Spartanburg at commencement last year. [Kenley graduation?]
The money was borrowed to pay Mr. Lide some interest on what I owe him for my last year in law school. I have made out the new note and am enclosing same herewith. To save time, after endorsing it, wish you would forward it directly to the Central National. I am writing them to say that the note is coming forward through you. The old note which this was to replace was for the same amount but I paid the interest on it before leaving Spartanburg leaving an even $108.00 due.
Very little news except hard work since I wrote Sunday. We have holiday tomorrow and expect to get in town and look up Frank’s friends and should find them in their offices at this time. Will write again Sunday as usual.
 Brother in law, Frank Broadnax, husband of Monty’s sister Kate Montgomery Broadnax?
