CARD DATED 11/14/1883
"1878-1883 Surprise fifth anniversary Mr. & Mrs. Charles T. 
Debevoise, at their residence, East Jamaica. Wednesday evening, 
November 14, 1883.

DOCUMENT MARKED "MR. CHAS. J. DEBEVOISE" 12/24/1888
I enclose herewith a statement of account of the executors of the 
estate of James DeBevoise dec'd which is substantially correct; the 
item, "amounts received and paid out", will probably vary a little
upon further examination, owing to the fact that the Executors have taken 
receipted bills for repairs etc., for rent, and in the payment of
bills against the estate, have succeeded in getting reductions. The
amounts thus saved have been credited to the estate while the bills are
receipted as presented. The actual cash in the Executors hands at this date is 
$761.44 and as the have kept the estate fund separate from their own, 
from the first, probably errors have been made in entering the amount 
received and paid out. In the accounting before the Surrogate the 
mistakes will be found, involving as it does the examination of over 
one hundred vouchers and about three times as many entries in the 
books and as the whole matter must be restated before the Surrogate,
I do not deem the amount involved of sufficient importance to warrant 
the expenditure of more time on it at present.
The item designated, "balance to be distrubited $81841.67", is 
subject to an alleged claim of Mrs. Elmira Betts of $4605.45 with 
interest from January 1, 1884 which the Executors believe to be 
without foundation and have duly rejected, it is also subject to the 
expenses of administration, commissions of Executors & expenses of 
the accounting; none of which can be determined before the final 
accounting. The reamainder will be divided according to the 
directions of Mr. DeBevoise's Will.
The Executors desire me to say further that if any of those
interested in the estate wish to purchase any of the real estate (except the
farm at Hollis, which Mr. A. J. DeBevoise has elected to take) at the prices 
designated and apply their share in the estate to the payment of it,
they may do so, and if more than one should wish any particular lot, at
the price named, they shall bid for it making the price named the
starting price. They already have a contract for the sale of one lot as
shown by the statement, and are negotiating for the sale of others at private
sale, if they are successful the estate will be saved the expense of a
public sale and the prices will probably be more satisfactory; at all
events the Executors are anxious to close the estate as speedily as the
interests of all concerned will allow, and if those interested do not care to 
purchase, and they are unable to sell at private sale within a very
short time, the Executors will make a public sale of the whole.
Dated, December 24, 1888.
Yours Resp'y
