Paris Station Feb 19th/1904

Messrs Geo. Foster + Sons

Brantford

Gentlemen,

Herewith enclosed

please find order for D.W.

[Dulmayr]. I did nothing

in Harriston. Mr. Waddell

and Mrs. McDowell have not

got their last goods. If [you]

have not shipped Mrs. McDowell's

[cases the tobacco] as she ordered

two [cad] by [express] from Hamilton

I intended to go up to Brussels last

night and drive to Jamestown + Bluevale

but it [commenced] to blow and snow

so I thought it best to get out of that

next county and not be [closed] in again.

I am to you true from Kincardine also there

to Mrs. McCosh. She has not got her fellow yet

will come to Brantford tomorrow.

I Remain

Yours Tho. McCosh
