Christiansburg July, 16th 1856 Dear Sir It appears that two reports in relation to the sale of the negro Ned has been made to your office: The last report is the correct one: I was not aware that a copy of the report had been sent on to your office, and at the time the Sheriff sent on his revenue, we ascertained that the mileage to the Islands & the expense to the Editor for publishing, had not been paid: these sums were taken off having been paid by the sheriff and the report corrected: Yours [respectfully?] R: D: Montague. C [Clerk] Current amount $232:93
