Eccles & Ingles DEALERS IN GENERAL MERCHANDISE DRY GOODS, BOOTS SHOES AND NOTIONS Scofield, Utah, Feb. 4th 1893 David Eccles Esqr. Ogden Dear Cousin I read your letter yesterday and was glad to hear from you Stewert wrote to me about some money his act shows a balance coming to him of $6111 he wanted me to charge the lumber he got on what was coming for the last year we run, but I understand that he got all of his Credits, I do not expect to get much money in as times is very poor but I think you can draw your money out I will try and get along. I only have about Two or Three Hundred to pay out soon. There is a new superintendent come in Sharps place for the U. P. Coal Co. and he is discharging all who do not trade with them, but I have put down some things very cheap so as to induce them to trade with me but the people are afrid this camp is done and not much good T. P. Page is owing for Lumber 680.65 but pays right along as it is due J W Eardley is oweing 31115 & Geo W Mickle owes 61763 and I am afraid it will be a hard job to get it. I have talked very straight to him about it. I have done away with the Credit Business to a great extent John Eccles is very Poor and Hard up he has no work at Present Ella is a little better and think she will get along all right as she feels altogether different from when she left. And I want you to tell me what Ellas bill is and I will settle it as soon as you let me know. did you use any of that mileage when you was up with Ballantyne let me know so I can charge it up, I would like to sell out to you as I do not care to stay here as I think I can go somewhere else and do better. Yours Truly J E Ingles
