Hon. T. Stevens
Yours of 7th inst has just reached me. Hines has had so many interests' to
consult that he was unable to give me a definite answer at once. I can say now
that I will take your interest in the property at nine hundred dollars ($900)
and am going on to make my arrangements for the above. Make me out a deed for
your part immediately - transferring to me the rents, taxes, etc., for the
coming year. I presume there can be no doubt
the title. I will expect you to make over to me the property, inc luding insurances and all the privileges you have. There is but little time between this and the 1st, and I desire speedy action. In regard to payments you can arrange to suit yourself. After the transfer is properly made I can either send you a draft, or meet you here or in Gettysburg abou the 1st of April.
Yours very respectfully
Jno. T. McIlheny
