to Thomas and J. M. White, Agents of the State Bank of Florida in Marianna, Florida
State Bank of Florida
WM. Bailey, President.
W. R. Pettes, Cashier. Tallahassee, Nov. 7th 1860
Messrs. Ths & J. M. White
Marianna Fla. Gentm
Yrs of 3rd inst recd with report of business Oct 27th to 5th inst inclusive.
Please return me by mail the unpaid paper of Hughes and of Roulhac.
Owning to the unsettled condition of political matters, and the possible
disturbance of commercial affairs in consequence, we do not care to do
much business just now. Perhaps affairs may assume a more cheerful
aspect soon, but the election of Lincoln which now appears to be certain
from the partial returns by telegraph, may cause a good of trouble in the
event of the secession of one or more of the Southern States.
Yrs Truly W. R. Pettes, Cashier
