Dear Brother

The Articles you forwarded to me came safe, I will take up the Bills at Barton & Craigs in due time. Mrs B. is very much pleased with the purchase- We are living Just as you left us - I was called yesterday into Scott Cy to see an Old Orleans patient of yours - he is a brother of the Dr Ficklin who dressed the wounds of Poiney - at the siege of Orleans == I have directed him to see you in Lexington - James is very happy - & is quite a romp among the Girls = his money & cloaths came safe = write to me often - what may be the size of your Class? Will Pattison still come on? - Whe do you lodge -

Yours truly,
P. M Brown
