Dear Cousin R. B. Stevens

I had intended to have written thee some time since in relation to our usual supply of Butter, but have been waiting to see our friends who unite with us in the order for the same, & whom we saw last week - and now have concluded to request thee to send us the same quantity as thee sent us last fall. (Viz. six packages of about 50 or 60# Each) and please have them marked No. 1,2,3,4,5,6 with the weight of each marked on the tub against the number, and please send a bill corresponding with nos. and weight which will enable us to divide them without trouble - and for fear that in these times of low prices, I may, (if thee should trust to me as thee did last fall to fix the price) lean to too much to my own

interest, to meet thy views. I would prefer that thee should make the price, when making the bill.

And I would be much obliged if thee would write me a day or two previous to its being forwarded, that I may be on the lookout for it -

My H. thinks of writing thee a few lines, to acompany this, and I will leave it for her to speak of our family & friends -

With much love for thee and thine I remain -

Thy Affectionate cousin

Joseph C. Peckham

P.S. Please on receipt of this drop me a line acknowledging the receipt of it, that I may know of thy getting it - J.C.P
