Dear Sir,
   On arriving at the Nirvells landing I learned that Capt. Ross had not selected any cars to be sent to you for the Shelby Iron Works. I have just arranged with Col. Tate, to send you all the Platform cars he has there not receipted for by this road. I think the number is six. I will also send you two box cars with the six. I expect to get them across the River today and tomorrow then ??? two cars at Selma that Col Tate says you can have the trucks are good but the bodies will require some new timber.
Yrs Truly
