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 We asked the Ohio Commissioners about the 4.2 years interest remaining uncollected on $500 stock of 1860 in the name of Captain 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 &


Lancaster & Co
