The Probate File of Henry Lambert, Pt 3

Continuing with the probate of Henry Donham Lee Lambert's estate in Oklahoma County Court, in July 1919 the court ordered the sale of Henry's 160 acres. Matilda objected to the private sale of the land, and asked the court to direct the land be sold by public sale, so as to get a better price. The court agreed.
On 6 September 1919, the property sold for $7150.00, above the appraised value of $4500. The buyer was Drusilla Burrows.
I'm building up to Matilda's letter, which will appear in Part 4.
