Summary
[Parkins?] briefly describes a trip to Richmond, Va., a "disagreeable" town, noting that he has been unable "to dispose of Andy" and will stay until he does. He mentions meeting Nat Lytle who is also in town, the purchase of potatoes and other supplies, the price of gold at $35, and a talk with the Governor. He adds that he has bought a girl and will send her up, and reports that "everything is very high down here and the people tolerable."
