Missouri Pacific Railway Bill of Lading

Another interesting contribution today from Frank Sente following the Missouri Pacific Railway (MOPAC) post from several days back.  Below is a MOPAC bill of lading for "ordnance stores" weighing a total of 211 pounds that were shipped from the Springfield Armoury in Massachusetts to the Ordnance Office at Fort Crook in Nebraska.  Unforunately, there are no details as to what types of ordnance.  The shipment was for 211 pounds, which isn't all that much weight when bullets and shells and other type of ammunition are involved.
