                            Sir. Your favor of 24th
inst. received. We have nothing new to com-
-municate. No news of water from Pittsburg
yet. the river is rising here and still raining
with a prospect of a nice rise. Sent you the
following telegram to day. Rise coming Ship. no
sacks yet. will send. invest money: The enclosed
statement will fully explain itself. We have
almost come to the conclusion that you had
as well close up your business there for the pres-
-ent. but if you were fortunate enough to buy
on the low prices 60 to 65 More wheat than
your money will pay for draw on us. and
we will send sacks as soon as possible-
but think it most likely you have not bot-
a great cal[?]- Philip Long died last night. There-
-fore suppose we will get his wheat. but some
will be sold by his administrator
                          Yours,
                                      R. Aleshire& Co.
