Letter from Colin Agnew to Tim Agnew

Date 27 Mar 1930

Letter (20 Mar 1931) from Colin Agnew to Tim Agnew, written from 125 East 57th Street, New York, relating that he has made further efforts to reduce expenses in New York by removing D.F. Houston as a "regular staff member" whilst offering him the option to continue as a salesman on commission only. Agnew relays Houston's reaction and future plans and states that he does not wish to reduce the staff numbers further as it may be difficult to build numbers up "when we get busy again."
