My Dear Sir;-

Yours of the 1st, with enclosed P.O. for $70, I duly recd. [sic] last night and hereby acknowledge the same, with my best thanks. The money shall be appropriated as you request. You have heard, doubtless of the effort, in which I have taken a good deal of interest, to raise a little money for our old friend Dr. W. I am glad to say that we have met with fair succefs [sic], as the enclosed list shows, since the date of which the aggregate has risen to upwards of $6000. On many grounds the poor old man is greatly to be pitied;- he is now almost a helplefs [sic] cripple and he has to do daily work for the support of himself and his family. I trust this will find Mrs. Baker and yourself well; and with kind regards,
I remain
Yours cordially,
George Cornish
