Dear Sir

About the beginning of the late war we were unsuccessful in an effort to collect interest for you in Ohio. The parties in New York thro= whom we made this attempt, now wish us AWe asked  the Ohio Commissioners about the 4 2 years interest remaining uncollected on $500 stock of 1860 in the name of ACaptain R E Lee@ They say that if General Lee will send an order on the State Treasurer Columbus Ohio he can collect the interest@

If you will send us the order we will take great pleasure in collecting the amount for you.

Yours respectfully & truly
