Reed Cash $100
50 U.Ds [Carpet?] @ 75 cts 37.50
My dear Major,
Coin. Anderson leaves unexpectedly in a few minutes, and I have only time to
request that you will pay to him my portion of the proceeds of the sale of Olympia lots,
which you told me would be ($160) and the small balance toward you upon your
departure from Astonia, twenty dollars making one hundred and eighty, which sum I
owe the Coin. We are all well in haste.
Maj. H.A. Goldsborough
