C.P. Huntington to Leland Stanford 24 Oct 1873.

Von Hoffman tell me they have written Belloc Freres to see you about C.P.RR earnings & when we can pay balance due them

Have told them our floating debt is about $ 300,000 which we intend to pay from earnings

Thinks can get them to carry balance

We must provide for Jany, interest & you must not promise too much

Deposit the 20,000 at once. See my dispatch of 23rd to Hopkins

Must have some to pay current & bills payable here
