1st to the 7th is too close. You might have the payment sent earlier. In some cases it might arrive on the appointed day, but too late in the day to meet the time they close the books for that day.
"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.
"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
