Dear Sir

I have just been informed that you sent yesterday for the Trunk.1 But as the messenger could not and would not tell what he wanted. Those whom he saw of course did not know what they were warranted in delivery to him as I have many other articles there for which they would be responsible. To prevent further mistakes I have written in chalk your name and contents on the trunk with instructions to deliver. If the messenger had been instructed properly there would have no difficulty.

Yours, William Dunn

1 Calvin Brooks and his brother Isaac had been trying to obtain the trunk containing train car coupler models for some time (W1728). For more on their unpleasant business relations with Dunn, see W2554a.
