something for me. I leave in the morning for Waukesha near Mil-
waukee via Chicago, and will return via Toledo. You shall
hear from me again. My sincere regards to the ladies and the
boys, and believe me as ever
Your friend sincerely

BRYAN TO BIRCHARD
Toledo, O., Sept. 18th 1871.
My dear Mr. Birchard
I arrived here on yesterday, and leave this afternoon for
N. Y. I passed through Chicago, leaving the same day I ar-
rived. I did not try to see your friend Otis, consequently did
not use your letter or Hayes' to him.
I spent two weeks at Waukesha, Wis., at a spring there, hop-
ing that my liver might be benefited. I am some better. I go
to N. Y. and will remain there a week and then I shall beat
slowly backward South. I have often thought of you affection-
ately since I shook hands with you. May your life be spared
many winters, and may you and I spend together other days of
genuine friendship as those I passed with you in your delight-
ful home of Spiegel Grove. Long, long, will their fragrance
perfume the recollections of my visit to Ohio. Present my re-
spectful and kindly regards to Miss Grant, and tell her when
I come back again, I promise not again to carry you out in the
rain. May she long be spared to be your comfort.
Send me Hayes' speeches. I would like to read them. Re-
gards to him.
Sincerely your friend
Guy M. Bryan.
P. S. I do not expect to effect anything here in regard to my
lands and shall not buy more.
Here’s what’s next.
