To George P. Floyd [1]

Mr. George P. Floyd, Springfield, Illinois,
Quincy, Illinois. February 21, 1856.

Dear Sir: I have just received yours of 16th, with check on Flagg & Savage for twenty-five dollars. You must think I am a high-priced man. You are too liberal with your money.

Page  333Fifteen dollars is enough for the job. I send you a receipt for fifteen dollars, and return to you a ten-dollar bill. Yours truly,
