Col B.M. Terrell
Your letter of 22nd is to hand. Mr. Strong has handed us the one hundred dollar Central Bank note. & we will pay you the forty dollars for it – where called are.
Let us now state that it has been so long & getting nothing from you that we supposed of course you would not get any. In the meantime the parties for whom we are buying it have reduced the price to $35.00 and expect every day for it to be reduced to thirty. So you will not buy any more above 35- and to be safe 30 had best be your standard. At present we can give you no advise as to the Quarles debt – he is in Texas and we know not what he will have left in the Estate. Mid cotton fine at 37c. Yours truly
(word?) A Winston & Co.
Note – Enclosed Receipt
Rec.d from B.M. Terrell Two Hundred and Thirty Three 33/100 Dollars in full for (words?) as overseen May 12/62.
Note – Both pieces of correspondence in envelope addressed to Col. B.M. Terrell
Aberdeen, Miss postmarked Mobile, ALA May 29.
