Messrs. T. & J. W. Johnson & Co.



I enclose herewith a check for $372:25, the amount of your bill for books this day received.

I desire to call your attention to the fact that in your schedule of prices furnished this Office the Georgia Reports were put at $5:75 per volume, while in your bill they are charged $6:50. I presume you will correct this in your next bill.

Very respectfully yours,

M. F. Pleasants, Chief Clerk.
