   To your note, we reply that it will take about Three Hundred (300) tons of stone coal, per annum, (which is 3 car loads per month) to run our works to full capacity on government work.
   We have not a bushel of either coal or coke on hand from the fact that car loads of coal loaded & paid for by us have been seized by other parties, at Chattanooga.
Very Respectfully
