It Is definitely aettled that the ex?

lines. That it will be sustained and
I aided by men and organizations from
other parte of Virginia la evidenced by
numbers of lettera Chairman William

"I have noticed through the press
that efforta will be made at the com?
ing session of the Legislature
to amend the Virginia mortgage tax
laws and to provide a small fee to bo
paid by the beneficiary In a (teed ot
trust when the deed ia admitted to
record, and not to require a tax on
the note secured by the deed of trust.
I venture the assertion that not on

the State of Virginia sveurea by deed
of trust Is the tax paid aa required by?
law, and those people who do give in
their notes have an unjust and unfair
burden placed upon tnem. 1 !>elle^e
that the State of Virginia would de?
rive very much more revenue by a
small tax. say half ot 1 per Cead of
the debt secured, than is at present
derived fr>m this source of taxation.
I am led to write this letter to assure
you that the efforts of the Real Estate

I the hearty approbation and support of
parties who are familiar with present
I conditions. There are a number ot

thus further the development of the
I resources of the State and Increase tax?

owing to this unjust double tax. They
I are people who believe in conforming to
the requirements of the law and who.
[ if they did loan their money out. would
, give In the bonds for taxation. I trust
that the educational work which your
exchange is now doing may be suc?
