Object Name Letter
Scope & Content Letter from Buffalo Cold Storage to Utica State Hospital. Business letter concerning about 8,000 odd cases of eggs dated June 18, 1909.

"Mr. C.A. Mosher, Sec'y.,
State Hospital,
Utica, N.Y.
Dear Sir:-
We have your valued favor with reference to the eggs you want for your different institutions throughout the State, and would say that we wrote to the owner of the eggs but have not heard from him.
It was our understanding that he will sell those 8,000 odd cases of eggs to you at 24 1/2 cents, storage paid to Dec. 31, 1909. We will candle those eggs and deliver them to the railroad for you as required at 12 cents a case. The No. 2's and cracks will be packed separate so that you can use those for cooking and the No. 1's for table uses, etc. The rots we can either ship to you or dump as you may desire.
In case you see fit to handle this matter in this way you would necessarily pay us for the eggs when they are purchased, or we will carry such portion of the loan as we ordinarily do at 6% interest on the note of the state. This I presume you would be unable to give, but would probably pay us for the eggs in full.
We should be glad to hear from you. It is extremely doubtful that the owner of the eggs would reduce this price any, but in case he would you would have the benefit thereof.
Yours truly,
Buffalo Cold Storage Company."
