We wrote you this morning advising that we had taken passage for you on the Steamer Empire which boat will be at Warrenton on Sunday night between 7 & 10 Oclock. The Sultana does not go up again.

We now hand you bill of articles for Karnac shipped this day per Steamer Charlotte which boat takes this up We could not procure a single copy of Ewells Medical Companion in the City and have sent Guns domestic Medicine in its place. Write us whether you will go on the Empire or not in order that we may secure your passage on another boat. The Uncle Sam goes up on the same day with the Empire but she is full.

Wishing you a safe and pleasant trip. We are very truly yours Nalle & Cox
