Dear Sir,
   I telegraphed you just now to send a train to Tarboro for corn. You can either consider the train as hired by the Government & charge the rates in the enclosed circular or you can consider it as hired to the other roads. I want you to use your trains as often as you can; for these is a vast amount of corn & forage at & near Tarboro that we wish removed as fast as possible.
Very Respectfully
Yr. obt Sevt
