Hockaday goes on to report that "prospects are favorable for a HEAVY DECLINE in grain and flour especially, and as Produce generally sells better and commands higher prices when new and fresh, I would advise the Virginia farmers to send them to market at the EARLIEST MOMENT..." Hockaday offers the services of a J. H. Redwood and Samuel H. Flannagan to help the farmers obtain good prices and quick returns. "GIVE ME A TRIAL" is all I ask." After serving in the Civil War, Hockaday opened a produce commission in Richmond. He left there in 1872 and moved to Roanoke where he started a real estate business.
