Description
This item is a letter sent from Thomas McCosh, a Paris merchant, to George Foster and Sons dated January 18, 1904. Mr. McCosh encloses orders for Richmond and $65 with a billing statement. He also says that his intentions to go to another town were prevented by poor weather and he had to double back, and then double back again after his train was stuck.
