   A telegram received from Capt Myers reports track laying as wholly suspended on Piedmont R. R. for want of iron.
   Your attention is called to the matter. I am prepared to discuss with you the letters recently written by you in regard to the removal of iron from the Pensacola RR {probably the Pensacola & Mobile RR} and the construction of the Lawton & Live Oak connection and would be pleased to see you in reference to them today.
Very Respy
Your Obt Servt
