Warren, O. Apl. 27, 1860

Dear Mit.

Please send me by return mail $12 – I have received from F.P. & Co. a letter stating that they cannot advance me any more money till I send them the songs now due them (about two as I make the calculation) as our present agreement is about expiring. They show a disposition to renew agreement, but, very properly required payment in music before any new arrangement. I have entered into an arrangement with a new house for part of my music, but, as the terms are not entirely fixed, I cannot well draw on them just now. I expect to be in Cleveland very soon on my way to New York, and will be able to settle with you. I require this amount for little washing bills &c. which are, you know, the most perplexing. Please send the amt. immediately in receipt of this.

Jane and Marion are well, also Etty’s family. I am very well, but had, as I supposed a slight touch of ague yesterday. I think today that it was only a false alarm. I have written two songs since I have been in Warren and have two under way, but do not feel inclined to send them off half made up. Much love to Jessie.

Your affec. bro
