Dear Mr. Kinard: i J
We have been turning heaven and *
'earth to find a cow for you. It is a <
difficult thing to find what you want1 <
j of the R. P. breed. They are very s
j scarce. There are only two breeders i
Jin this State and their prices have,
j been such that we did not find it wise ?
j to buy from them. We are trying to j 1
j secure the cattle for you, and at the j ^
same time we are no;. willing that '<
ycu should pay an exorbitant price. J?
We are in communication now with '
some breeders in the West and I hope 1
we will be able to get what you want, i
| at the price we think will prove sat- i
isfactory. We have been in communi- i
cation with a good many people, and
I do not want you to think we have i
neglected this mater for one moment. 1
We are too much interested in try- i
ing to develop the live stock in Newberry
county to let a proposition that
you have so generously made go by. i
