Mr. Wm. M. Thornton,
University of Virginia
Referring to your letter of the 8th instant, to President
Spencer, regarding rates on building material for the reconstruction
of certain buildings at the University. I beg to advise that we
will accept on this material, when from local point on our line, one-
half local tariff rates, and on shipments originating beyond junction
points on our line, we will reduce the proportions accruing to us
out of the rates on such shipments, one-half.
Yours, very truly
