                              Gallipolis, O., Feb 4th 1869
  J.P. Aleshire
                     Sir
                         The writer has been examining
yesterdays (Wednesdays) papers and quotations of
No 2 Chicago 3/4 to one cent higher. New York
lower and dull and Philadelphia Red Wheat
1.60 to 1.80 all the eastern markets are dull
and lower for Breadstuffs= as well as the
European markets. I notice No 1 red is still
held at 1.70 in cincinnati "but" what sales
are making at is hard to tell= Business
remains remarkably dull. Trust however som-
-thing will turn up to give a better ^life^ to trade.
I still think you will be able to buy wheat
in Greensburg and Shelbyville So as to not
cost over 1.68 to 1.70 on Board Boat=
I furthermore think prices in cincinnati must
go lower in this I may be mistaken
We mail this evening $2000 to First N. Bk
cincinnati Will send no more until we
hear from you= can drawn $5000 any time
if necessary "But" Think it best to run
a little slower.                     R. Aleshire & Co
