Filed under: Civil War Daybook — Lori Williamson @ 9:00 am

“Dear Sir,  The concern in which I am employed are manufacturing very largely, Mens Sewed Army Brogans of a very superior quality, for our Troops.  They are selling them to this, and some of the neighboring States for $1  65/100 per pair nett: every pair of these Shoes may be subject to the inspection of the proper officer appointed by this State or the United States at an extra cost of two cents per pair and they will furnish sizes as ordered.       The Shoes are made from the Government pattern and are of equally good quality, style and durability. If your State should need any of the same we would be happy to receive an early order.  Yours very truly                       Jarvis W.  Tindall of graduating class of Feby [?]/53 C.H.S.  Our house has sold goods to your Brother in law Mr Louis Faiver.”
