Messrs. Jones & Howell,

I wrote you on the 9th. for two tons of nail rod, and 2½ hundred of bar iron. among the latter I should wish to have bars of an inch square amounting to 30. f. in length or running measure, also that you would add to the order sheet iron 2 f. wide & of the longest sheets you have making up. 60. f. of length in the whole, or running measure. should the rod & bars have been sent off before you recieve this, be so good as to send the present order in addition. I salute you with esteem & respect.
