Dear friend, a ***** experience shows these figures: 15 $ by Pistal Order N.Y.: 105 shilling 90g--by Am.Sept.Ca, [cadily] here at Bank: 105.83g--by Jel., calling A Dark: 104.701--notes sold here at Bank would bring 105.99.

Thus notes 105.99--pistal order N.Y. 105.90--A.Ex.Ca 105.83--Jel. 104.70--this is in favour of ***tes evidently, as the cost of A.E. ****** must be added, no doubt besides loss of time at ***ds. The ********* ******* at home here.

I hope you *** long better *********. ** *** *** and ****** **** please **** N.

Dear friend A.B., happy Easter to you and may your health be satisfactory. Some day from someone I hope to hear about you; at present I am still ***ing myself a letter and thus am worthy of news. Do get well with a will.
