Sulphur Springs, Texas
August 16th, 1878

Mr. J. C. Brewer

Dear friend,

It is with a great degree of embarrassment I endeavor to reply to your very interesting little missive, which I received but a few hours ago. But, knowing "Trial is the channel of all blessings," I proceed.

I was very uneasy about you the day you left here, and regret so much about your leaving now; as you had such a terrible time of it, but be assured you have my heart felt sympathies in all of your troubles and cares.

"And at night when I kneel down by my bedside to pray, I'll remember my friend
in my prayers."
