All letters should be addressed to the Company. A. 11,717. New Haven, Conn. U.S.A. May I8, 1898 Horace Kephart, Esq., Mercantile Library, St. Louis, Mo. Dear Sir:- We have your favor of the 11th and would say that the .30 single shot could only be supplied you in sporting form. It would be a very difficult and expensive matter to put on a heavy barrel like that in musket form. It would be almost impossible to fit the forearm in the frame; it would have to be very thin on the edges. New band, new tips and a new bayonet hilt would have to be made, which would be almost prohibitory. Regarding rates, would say that we are sorry that our arrangements with the St. Louis dealers are such that we shall have to refer you to them. The Simmons Howe Company could supply you with the guns and we hope you can favor them. The gun itself with the regular No. 3 barrel and plain sporting sights lists at $20.00. Special sights and other additions would of course be extra according to list. Yours respectfully, Winchester Repeating Co., A. W. Hooper V. Prest
