   I received your letter of May 7th enclosing Captain Grant's certificate of $60,000 and the 15th inst. made a requisition to have that amount placed to the credit of Capt. G. with W. M. Smith, Depositary at Selma.
   When Captain Grant is notified by Mr. Smith that the Bonds are ready, he will turn them over to you, and taking receipts in the usual form.
Very Respectfully Yours
