The Book Concern has received Finley's letter containing $1,700 for book sales. Though Soule and Mason are very grateful, they did take a loss because bank notes from the West are subject to a high discount in the East. They ask Finley to be very careful with the next payment. Kentucky notes are best for the Book Concern, as are large denominations. They also ask Finley to avoid unincorporated banks. Abstract Number - 1207
