Letter to "Mr. Buchard," in full: "Yours of the 16th was received in due season. I have never understood the T. & B. Tool Co. quite, before the explanation you give. If it is as you say, (of which I have no doubt), it is all right. I pity you and Mr. Merritt, I am glad that the creditors rec'd 100% on their claims."
