Dear Mother, Went to the Post today, will begin next Monday to send 37. On account of the ship wreck they said he might be able to get rid of the 40 this week. Exchanged the dimmer box O.K. but had to get a 35 cent one. All out of the 25 cent ones. -- GeorgeAlthough we don't know the exact details of what George was talking about, clearly his business transaction was affected by the wreck of the Titanic. What a fascinating view into how the disaster affected many people, some in very humdrum ways!
