Letter from Edward Partridge, 27 May 1839

Quincy Ill, May 27th 1839
Beloved brother
Sister Bronson has just handed me the enclosed  letter which she wished me to forward to you, She and Br H. both say they expect that  it is for you— but if it proves not to be your letter you can rectify the mistake.  Br W. C. I expect is up that way somewhere, I send by Br Fisher. Br Harris’  daughter is thought to be rather on the mend, but she is yet very low.
Your’s in the hope of immortality
