                             Gallipolis, O., Nov 14 1867
J.P. Aleshire Esq
                                    As we have been
unable to ship any quantity of flour for
want of water. The writer has concluded to
remain at home awhile on account of
Financiering. We are tight up- dont want
to borrow any money if we can get along
without- Your wheat coming to hand so
rapidly requires considerable to pay char-
-ges and freight. Therefore if you can buy the
scales we wrote you about payable at
30 days date. and get them at cash
prices you may do so otherwise dont
buy. as we can work along awhile
longer. yet they would be quite desirable
we might pay for them in ten days
There are two kinds both #4 The Dormant
Warehouse and Dormant Storehouse Scales
platforms of both are the same 41+43 in.
in writing you we had our mind on the
Store House scales in this we may have been
wrong. you can judge which would suit us
best                              R. Aleshire
