My Dear Sir,

I have received yours of the 8th instance in reference to an exchange of cotton goods for cotton card, and have to say in reply that Col Richard Caldwell ? ? General of SC is charged with the distribution and sale of the Cotton Cards made by ? at the State Card Factory. The price fixed for the Card is $12.00 for fair. I will hand your letter to Col. Caldwell and he will probably write to you about it himself-.

I am very truly

Yours,

James Sens
