Mr Ino Farver


Yours of the 28th last month was not received until a few days ago, owing to my being absent from home (in Georgia) fer several days  If you have not made arrangements for overseers yet I can still be hired at a fair price, and would be glad to make a trade with you, if it is too late I will give you a hearing again next Summer fer 1859.

Very Respectfully

H F Scarborough
