My Dear Beck

Yours of 4th in it you do not say anything what is best to do— or where I am to write you. Or who is in the new Co— [2] So I have nothing to say— as I know nothing— probably Alger will write I wrote Alger that Mead would be there the 18th with a party of men from pl Cincinnati O. who may want to go in with us—

Very truly your friend

W. F. Cody
