"Little Rock, Ark., Dec. 13, 1892.

United States Nat. Bank, New York city

Gentlemen: In accordance with our letter of the 25th ult., and your reply of the 28th ult., we find that we shall need some more money, as our cotton men are not shipping out any cotton. It seems to be the inclination of all of them to hold for a better price, and we are now carrying $175,000 in demand loans on cotton, which we may have to carry two or three months longer.

We inclose herein paper as scheduled below. Kindly wire us proceeds to our credit, and oblige,

Yours very truly, H. G. Allis, President.
