A bit of ephemera today. Here’s a bank deposit slip showing Alexander Gray deposited $336.75 into Heaton Bank, Craig, Missouri, on June 7, 1889. In today’s funds that is about $8,860.
William Henry Heaton (1840-1920) ran the bank and the deposit slip is signed by his son Edward Heaton.

I received my deed
from Heaton Bank, so
all is OK & I wish to
thank you for all past
favors. We are having a
good time but it is
very hot & dry here.
Best wishes to all. I
am yours truly [RA Simon?]
Heaton Bank was in Craig, Missouri. Is it signed R. A. Simon? That is my best guess.
