Chicago, Feb 16 1864

Wm Gooding Esq

Lockport Ill

Dr Sir
We are negotiating for transportation of a large quantity of oats from here to Nashville in Canal Boats. They are government property having been bought direct for Govt under orders from Genl Allen U. S Quarter Master Louisville -- We presume if proper evidence is presented they will pass through canal toll free. Please inform us if we are right in the matter & what vouchers we would require to insure their passage free of toll

Yours Truly

Norton & Co
