Letter (correspondence)

August 14, 1888
Messrs J. D. Spreckels & Bros,
San Francisco, Calif.,

Gentlemen:-- Will you please purchase one gross of one quart water pitchers, of strong stone china, white, with large mouth so ice can be put in, and have the shipper send same, drawing with bill of lading attached?

Can we arrange with you to purchase the hotel supplies, you drawing at the end of each week for the amount of bills for the preceding week? I have assumed charge of the hotel, and wish to keep the accounts separate from those of the Beach Co.

Yours truly,
E.S. Babcock Jr
