Mr- Calhoun Man?s, District Superintendent,
Mutual Lite Insurance Co., New York.
Anderson, S. C.
Dear Sir :
I want to thank you, and through you, yom company for the
check tor $927.00, which you have today handed nie in settlement
of death claim under policy No. 1775953, on the life of my husband,
I hardly know how tu express m> appreciation of Hie treatment 1
have received by sour Company.
On February 27th, 1909, the above named policy was issued for
?1000.00. The Compati) made a loan of ?87.62 under same, and
this loan with accrued interest was due on February 27th, I'M ?, and
as same was not renewed, il appears that the Company returned the
policy lo my husband, who w as then living at Vina, Ala., indorsed as
"paid up tenn insurance,'' for sl>27.oo, tor one year and one month,
?from February 27th, 1913. He died June 28th, 1913, and I was
fsot aware for some time that the insurance was in force and al
though I have never been able to lind the policy, your Company,
through you, is today paying me the $927.00.
The treatment which I have received, certainly proves to mc that
your company looks out at all times for the interest of its Policy
Holders, and it will be a pleasure for me to recommend the Company
to any one anticipating taking out Life Insurance.
Again thank you, I alli
Yours very truly,
(Signed) Della A. Kay.
Tb; best company is the one thai does the most good.
