   Mr Andrews Frt Agt A&TRRR {Alabama & Tennessee River RR} informs me that cars have been left for our lumber, but that no attention is paid to who they are left for & they are loading for parties in Talladega. Why is it? You should always load the cars provided by us so that our lumber is taken away. Our orders should always take precedence of all others, as ?? was given you to any other lumber, only when our orders were filled. It is very difficult to obtain cars & when they are sent for ????? them loaded for us.
Very respy
Your obt svt
