                                There has been some mistake about the hoops, I recvd  from ou a few days ago.  I thought when I gave the order, that I was ordering hoops for 100 lbs. & 50 Hhd. [?].  I find I have hoops for 150 lbs & no Hhd. Hoops.  I would therefore thank you to let me have hoops for 50 Hhds. as soon as you can.  I do not  exactly know the sizes & lengths but by looking over your orders you can ascertain that fact== Please write me upon the subject immediately & again when the hoops are ready & will send up for them.

                                                                        I am respectfully your

                                                                        [signed] George Robinson


P.S. Please let the hoops be as strong as you sold for any of yr.[?] customers.
