I received on the 13th inst from you 2 bales Flannel, viz: Red, White, & Blue, in all 2860 yards. I have been instructed by the Chief of Ordnance to use the “Blue” for making “Incombustible Dresses” for my female operatives, and for which I am to charge the cost price per yard. Will you please give me the cost price, in order that I may as early as possible, ascertain the indebtedness of each individual.

Very Respectfully
Your Obdt Servt
