The manager of the B. Nicoll & Company acknowledges receipt of a contract from Carlisle Indian School Superintendent John Francis Jr. to furnish the school 100 tons of coal and informs Francis that they cannot sign it because the contract states that they are a corporation when they are not. The manager would still like to sell the school coal and offers to rewrite the contract.
