My Dear Uncle,
Allow me to
commend to your perusal some
lines – which else may not meet
your eye – over the signature of a
gentleman who, many years
since was clerk with me in my
Father's

book store in New York
Mr Randolph
Birth: 1820 Death: 1896-07-06
, the Publisher.
I have asked my Brother
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
to
express to you my sympathy in view
of recent trials. And I beg now to
add my congratulations upon
your own and Fredericks
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
progress
toward recovery.
Very Respectfully
and Sincerely,
Your Nephew

The Honorable
