The circular comments on weather conditions in the Atlantic and Gulf states that had adversely affected the cotton crop as well as the impact of the economic situation in Europe. The grain crops throughout Great Britain and the Continent were promising, however, and Harllee notes in conclusion: "Our merchants are busily engaged preparing for a large fall business. Any goods wanted by my friends will be carefully laid in at the lowest market prices."
