Sir:

In writing you yesterday of the shipment of corn by the Purveyor I should have mentioned that the people of Georgia are indebted to the liberality of the citizens of San Francisco, for this additional lot of corn. Had it not been for their generous contribution to our Treasury we should not have had the means to freight the Purveyor.

Very Truly Yours,
Edw Bright Cor Sec
