The owner of the Tredegar Iron Works pursues an enquiry on the price of pistols: "In your letter of 9th Feb. to us you say: 'we could furnish you at once with 250 of our new model Army or Holster pistols and at the rate of say $300 per week from this time forward, if desired - price $25 each - less 10 discount.'...Please inform as whether $25. less 10 or $22.50 apiece is the price you charge to parties who buy direct for their own use, or whether that price is confined to parties buying to sell again."
