Dear Father
I write to ask you about
my Pony
Unknown
. Mr Miller
Unknown
our
cousin has a Pony a great
deal larger than mine that
he wants to sell so as to get
a larger horse to work on the
farm he is only four years old
and mine is nine years. He
asks eighty five dollars for him
and I can sell mine for seventy
five – then I have the rest of the
Money of my own. Mother
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21

says she would like him as
well as a larger horse. If Mr
Underwood
Birth: 1801-09-16 Death: 1881-10-12Certainty: Possible
thinks he is a good
horse have you any objection
to my buying him.
Your Affectionate Son
W. Seward
