At present the River is high, but falling a little & the indications are that the Season will be favorable & I will try to get what you wish - How many & what do you want? - I send you bill for last season work, - as I did not get nearly what </s I > you wanted. I have only charged you what I actually paid for the Mud puppies & c & Expence
