Dr Sir,
   As you cannot sell us 3 mules, please loan them to us, most of the coal will be for you & mules we take advantage of this chance for cars, while the S&N RR {South & North Alabama RR} is not in operation. I dont know when we will get the coal out of the Coal switch. We can haul out your coal & ours to, please dont fail us.
Yours Trly
Geo. O. Batten
