Office of Tucker, Harker & Buchanan,
Attorneys at Law,
Okolona, Miss., April 4th 1872

Gen. Patton Anderson
Dear Sir:
I desire if you can do so, that you take charge of my herd of cattle, and I leave the
whole matter with you. As to what I shall get & will be satisfied with whatever you may
do. Keep them for me until Fall. I do not want the, to be an expense to me of course
during the time. If you conclude to take them I will give you an order for them. You can
get them now or wait until two weeks when grass will be better. I assure you they will be
in bad-plight. They have been used to warm & dry shelters and food and to an extreme
Southern climate and this winter they have no shelter scarcely & little or no food. You
need not expect much of them. Just do the best you can with them if you take [them].
My KY bull died. Let me hear from you.
Your friend,
A.T. Harker
