           Respected Friend

                  Thy letter of 2nd inst to our A B Justice came duly to hand enclosing check on E W Clark & Co for seven hundred & sixty dollars & a ten dollar Maryland Note out of which we have paid by thy direction as follows

    To  H & W Dubosq amt note less disct & Exchge  192.09 
    John M Harper "— "— "— "— "—  265.20 
    Klemm & Bro "— "— disct 5% -  72.45 
    W H Horstmann & Sons "— "— "—   68 — 
       In full thy note to us less 5% disct 66.89  
       Balance as per rect above to Cornelius & Co  105  
       Amt of remittance   $770 

    We enclose all the notes which we have paid off - cancelled. McAllister & Co refused to discount 5% for cash & as thee directed provided that discount was taken off - it was to be paid - we have supposed that thee wished the money paid where it would command that disct & have passed the whole balance over to Cornelius & Co. We mentioned these circumstances to C & Co & if thee still wishes

    — page two —

    McAllister & Co note paid - they will attend to it.

    Klemm & Bro said their note had run too long to take off 5% & Exchange also - but they would allow 5% – which me thoughts fair & so settled the note.

    The patterns we send by the same mail with this letter. - We presume it will rate as a pamphlet at 2 1/2 cts per ounce - postage. Enclosed in a letter it would be 20 cts per ounce -

    Accept our thanks for our share

    And believe us                            

    Thy friends

    Esteemed Uncle

        I add a few lines to say we are all in good health & that the family desire their love to you - We heard of your word loss at Baltimore some time since & were truly sorry for it - as you say Baltimore has been an unfortunate place for you - I have trensferenced your letter to me & the funds to our firm for the convenience of taking receipts & making entrees in our Books & hope what I have done will give satisfaction - Calvin Bennett paid us a visit a short time since He is about to open store in Johnstown Pa & came on for the purpose of purchasing goods - He said you ought to have stopped to see him - He would have been glad to see you - Louise insinuates that crochet work could be done quite as well in Philada as Louisville & sent out without any difficulty if Uncle Henry was disposed to employ some of his poor relations - which means I suppose that a certain industrious sister in law of mine is somewhat ambitious to do something towards maintaining herself & is rather fond of that kind of fancy work -

    Give our kind regards to Charles and take your own share also. - We hope C & her little one are well & that the present will find you recovered from your cold -

    Your nephew & friend        

    A B Justice
