Letter from Ilus Fabyan Carter, 18 May 1854
Portland Recd from W. Woodruff Three hun- dred Dollars to be enclosed in note Sanborn & Carter fr[om]. I. F. Carter Bro. W. Above I send you recpt, for amount sent by Mr. Stewart, which was promptly forwarded by him, he paid $3.50 for Draft, which is unnecessary, for exchange is in favor of N. York & Boston from St Louis. the amt. payable in the east from St. L. is large making eastern funds desirable and frequently bringing a premium. perhaps it would be well for you to mention that to anyone you might be sending by. I wrote you a day or two since acknowledging the recpt of $7.00, hear nothing from Horner. all quite well, hope to hear from you often now the mails are in opperation again, please remember me very kindly to all. In haste Yours truely I. F. Carter
