DEAR SON JOHN, I reached home last week, and found all well, and the weather fine, which has been the case since you left Essex County. I expect to return to SPRINGFIELD some day next week, but wish you would forward me (without delay} by letter directed to me at this place (Westport, Essex Co.), care of F. H. Cutting, a draft on New York for $250, payable to my order. Please let my wife know.
Your affectionate father, JOHN BROWN.
