New York - March 20th 1878
My Dear Father, Mother & Brothers,
I hope these few lines will find you all well as this leaves me a present thank God. I hope you will excuse me for not writing I am sending you twenty dollars this time. After April I will send you some more.
I have not seen Mary for some time can you write to Mary for I am going in the country. I have not got much for the present I must conclude.
I remain your affectionate son.
