[Baltimore, MD: Cox Brothers & Co., 1867]. Broadside, 32 x 20 cm. Printed in various sizes and styles of type. Text gives interest and terms on the bonds. On the verso in pencil is a manuscript note: "Balto Mar 6 1867. Dear Father / I enclose this and by it you see that the 7 - 50's can be changed 5 - 20's - set terms and write me if you wish the 2000 of 7 - 30 which I have changed for 5 - 20's- We are having a snow storm today but is warm enough to melt it nearly as fast as it comes making it very sloppy. Corn $1.06. Bought only 100 bushels today. [signed] Rodney (?)" One hazards a guess that this is exchanging bonds issued to finance the Civil War. OCLC lists no copies. Item #65154
