General Wm. L. Ashley
Dr. Sir
I made an enquiry of the Bank Officers today and found that your Beaver not for $2247.20 due in Pittsburg or 3rd April would have to be forwarded immediately as it might not arrive before it is due. I had therefore to turn it over with my Endorsement, they took [?]_____'s from and 15 days interest leaving $2230.35 subject to your order on me at sight -

If this arrives before you draw, I can either forward this to you by any one you may entrust or some merchant in St. Louis may require funds here which will answer without any Loss, as the note was so near maturity the Bank would not wait any longer and the negotiation there that Institution be prevented.

Very Respectfully
Dr. Sir
Your Most Obd. [Obedient]
