Alma P O Page Co [illegible] 2nd Feb 1856 Newton Sir I received your letter on the subject of the [illegible] bond, in which you say that Pilson offers fifty dollars for our interest I think that am I too small, tho I know but little about that kind of funds. I wrote to sheffry for information concerning them not long since but he did not answer me- You May however offer Mr Pillson fifty dollars more than he offered you- that is one hundred and fifty dollars for the [Hinly?] interest if you think it advisable to do so, and that would, too, [illegible] Mr Pilson’s desires, in affording an opportunity to make a final settlement. I would like very much to get some information about these bonds as I have some friends in Washington who would cheerfully investige the matter for me. But I do not even know how to designate them or what to call them- nor do I know in whose hands they have been placed for collection. I have also recently written to Henderson as politely as I know how, urging him to state the account of Finley’s.estate so that a settlement could be made, but I have not yet heard from him Please present our respects to your family Respectfully yours [illegible] JMohler
