1891 Warsaw New York Old Paper Document

Letter taken from a ledger from a store which used to be located in Rock Glen New York. Document date on top sheet is Oct 12, 1891. Ledger document is from a business in Warsaw, New York. Business name on document is The New Watkins, C. T. Watkins, Prop'r. This is a two sided letter of payment request. It is addressed to "Friend Davis"

Here is a transcript of the parts I could decipher:

Friend Davis,

What has gone wrong? You did not answer my letter of a week ago.... Has the house offended you ... ? I have done my best with you at all times and you would do me a favor to write me a forward letter (to the house) and let me know where the trouble is...
