Mr A T Jones
Dr Sir,
   I went to Uniontown yesterday and through the friendship of the conductor I procured two cars which I loaded with corn and will send up by tomorrow's (Fridays) fght train. I am having one car loaded here with Mrs King's corn which I expect to send up Monday -- making six cars this week. I expect to get some cars loaded on the regular corn {Word missing where page is torn} which goes to the Canebreak Saturday. I have heard nothing from Mr Wallace yet. Mr R W Moore wants to see you immediately in reference to the contract for finishing your rail road {Shelby Iron Works RR} from the depot to the works. He goes to Ashley Station today. Corn sold yesterday at Uniontown for 3.00 pr Bu, Bacon sell here for 5.00 Beef 2.50 Meal 4.00 Molasses $20.00
Yours truly &c
J. M. Zillman
