Dear sis I have an order for one case of your family medicines and there are several others that are talking of buying each a case what is the very best you can do & you know times are hard with us the locusts are committing fearful savages & the future looks very dark to many of our people. Yet people will sicken & die no matter what the times may be & they need medicine. Give me as low figures as you can & let me know as soon as possible on most terms you can send me ½ doz cases of 25 remedies. Also send prices of smaller cases & oblige yours a C M. E. Wiles.
