Oktibbeha County Miss May the 6/63
Mr James Sykes
Mr Peters informed me yesterday that there was a gentleman with you by the name of Gillespie who had negroes that he might probably higher out, and that you might probably be able to give me any information. If he has them please say to him that I would like to hire eight or less men at a reasonable price for the year, or I will give them up at any time, and pay for the time only. Please write me at "Artesia Depot" giving me the desired information. He could bring them out or I will come up and see him
