Warren, O. May 31, 1860.
Herewith I send you a draft on Firth Pond & Co. for $50 – which I wish you to hold for ten days, and, if you can conveniently, please send me the amount by return mail. There will be no trouble about payment of the draft. I have only one song to finish in the time mentioned. I desire you to pay Mr. Shoenberger (the landlord) at the end of the month as I engaged to do, and have told him that I would pay him when I hear from Cleveland.
I received a very cheering letter yesterday from F.P. & Co. and feel in good spirits generally.
Jesse Thornton arrived yesterday looking very well. We all did our best to give him a hearty welcome, and you never saw such a happy family. He informed me that Jessie (yours) was in Cleveland, therefore I infer that you have been in Pittsburgh since I saw you. I expect to start for New York, before very long and hope to see you both.
Your affectionate brother
