dc.description.transcription[1946] 117th Street Virginia Beach, Va July 30 Dear Mr. Carter- We have finally selected a man for the Ft. Worth Sales Manager position after carfefully reviewing all of the possible candidates. His name is Harry Wiseman- he has been with the compay about ten years & since returning from the Navy on Jan. 1st has been Sales Manager at Newport. He is from a small town in up state New York. Altho I would have preferred some one from the "cotton country," I am well satisfied that Harry's big smile & straight-from-the-shoulder methods will appeal to you and to the Ft. Worth people. We decided upon him just as I was leaving for Va. Beach with my family and I didn't have a chance to write you from N.Y. He will be in to see you when he arrives next week & I hope that you will like him. I suppose that you will be up for the Directors meeting next month & I shall look forward to seeing you then. We certainly enjoyed those ham steaks & the whole family appreciates your thoughtfulness. Kindest regards. Very sincerely, Willis Lipscomb
