To the Rev. Bishop of Russian Church

 

Rev Bishop,

 

We beg to call your attention to our having bought a cemetery in San Mateo Co for the interment of our members and Greek Catholics. As you know the Old Greek Church Cemetery is neglected and mostly destroyed, and as there are several Russian priests and Catholics buried there we would like you to use your power to have their remains removed to our cemetery. At present we are selling the plots very cheaply, but as the improvements are made, expenses will increase, so that we will be compelled to raise the prices. We intend to improve and keep it in first class condition. So what we ask you to aid us in making it a grand success and we will be very thankful for what-ever help you can give us in the matter.

 

Respectfully yours,

J. Kukaviza
