Dear Sir,
   We have loaded three cars of Coal for you this date, but owing to an hindrance from Browne's Cars being in the way, have not got them to the switch in time for this days train, you will receive them on or before Monday Jan 26th.
   The marks on cars are 91..29..79.
   We sent three cars to you on the 9th of Jan and two on the 16th Jan both lots lay at Montevallo Depot {on the Alabama & Tennessee River RR} sometime before they were taken up further.
Yours truly
