Dr General

                        Your favor of the 6th inst to hand this morning.  From its tenor I infer you have not received a package of fifty cards assorted sent by mail within ten days after I sent the Box.  A portion of them were without the imprint.  I shall have 100 made & mounted without any imprint presuming you will prefer them so.  When you wish any more let me know without sending any money

And greatly oblige

                                                            Yours respectfully
