Mr John Newton I think it better to change your terms of sale of the Campbell land extending the payments 6 months longer and requiring no money in hand except the costs of Sale and your commission believing as I do that the Land will sell for more. I make that request of you and by so doing you will oblige Thomas McCormick per Dal. W McCormick May 8th 1868
