Staunton Virginia 18th August 1867 Mr John Newton, Greenville Dr Sir I write this morning requesting kindness at your hands to request Mr Tink (the party conveying us the Cotopaxi property) to ride down at his earliest convenience as there are some parties here from the North in search of such property. It is quite probable that we can effect a sale. Your son (Maj Newton) can inform him where I can be found. Please tell him or write him a note to come down at once. Your attention will be gratefully rec'd. Respectfully John S. Libscomb
