Memphis Tenn. April 27 1867


Dear General,
Your favors of the 19th & 21st all to hand & contents noted. The letter to Crom
[Cromwell], I have forwarded per express & it will reach him before the first of May.
Laurence + Carter sent the 5 bales of hay by the McCune out Wednesday & by the "I am
able" to day I send you 1 ton hay & 12 sacks corn, from Elliott & meal & oil from Frank.
Elliot only charges for 10 sacks corn, & I made him put in the other two, in settlement of
damage on other lot. I think the corn sent to day is all right, but would suggest that you
have it all emptied out & spread on a floor & turned occasionally. By this means you
will be able to ascertain any damage on receipt, as the shippers, object to reclamations
after so long a period. Frank says pursue the same course in reference to your meal, as he
is satisfied, it will not keep any length of time in bbls: he pursues this course on his own
place, & has lost nothing. You could save your corn sacks, & when you get a 100, send
them back, as good are worth 15 to 20 cents each. I have charged you with the $75 note
given for May's due bills, as I was in need of it. The note due Mothers, I will hold up but
your concern, must pay the same rate of interest as I can get from others. I spoke to
Frank, about balance due them, & he is content to wait a while, & also to do what is
equitable in the premises as to the meal. Enclosed I hand you note & bills paid, with
abstract of a/c, showing balance due you of $89.45. Cara is improving slowly, the baby
has a very bad cold; the balance of the family all well. Business flat, & discouraging, & I
think it doubtful if the businessmen of Memphis can pay expenses this year.
Yrs Truly,
H.D. Bulkley
