|Scope & Content||

March 8th 1822
My Dear Uncle
I have only a moment to write, therefore excuse my brevity. We are all well. Father started a few days ago for Ohio county on business which will detain him probably 3 weeks. I have been very busily employed since my return from Lexington, but have continued to write a few sheets on the subject of which we were conversing. I would send it to you, but as I have written it more in a familiar manner for your own eyes, than for a pamphlet form I shall retain it until you come to Frankfort.
By the first opportunity please do send my black vest which I forgot in your room.
My Love to James
Yours M. Brown
Dr S Brown
P.S. Uncle Preston says you must make haste as he is reserving a kegg of oysters for your arrival.
Doctor Samuel Brown
Politeness of Mr. Payne
