Brandywine Chester Co August 20th. 1841
Esteemed Brother in the Gosple
As Brother William Gheen and Hunter leaves here to morrow morning for your place, I embrace this opportunity to drop a line, As Brother Gheen has not sold his property yet I wish you to supply him with some property ther on my account; and Brother Whitesides has writte to me for money; as money is scarce with me at this time, having my stock on hand yet, and meeting with difficulties a little as he did I am under the painful necesity of sending him your note, if you can answer it, it will oblidge me verry much, and him too I expect, If you cant do it, I hope ere long to be there and attend to it myself, my heart sickens within me to see the conduct in this place at this time. We are all well at present and hope this will find you & Family enjoying the blessings of health and peace we wish to be remembered to all enquiring friends, With sentiments of respect I subscribe myself yours as ever
