Dear Brother,
There is a claim in the office, which was advanced by the Governor for $61.35/100 in favor of one Grimes, which it appears necessary to pay; there will then remain about $58. of the draft in our hands. In order to prevent overdrawing of orders, I thought it would be well to advise you how the matter stood on our books, in order to avoid any misunderstanding. If our accounts and yours agree all well; if not please call at the Office and compare.

Respectfully & Truly
Your Friend & Brother
D. H. Wells.
