Abstract

"We beg to confirm our cable of the [8th?] 'When where should good arrive name steamer.' To which you replied on this date: 'Steamship Othello October first eighty nine.' You will observe that this is not a proper reply to our message & leaves us without information as to the port to which the steamer is coming…. ## We shall be glad to know if the shipment you made per express Wells Fargo & Co was at an [agent?] price. We have been charged something like 125 dollars for this shipment, which is an enormous sum to add to the cost of the goods."
