Oakland, Texas
August 27, 1878

Mr. Johnie Brewer
Very dear friend,

I am unable to find words to express the gladness and joy the reception of your very interesting and welcome missive afforded me by its arrival this evening. I was indulging rather in a fit of the "blues" when it was handed to me, but after hearing some very kind words from you, every sad and gloomy thought was entirely dispelled, and I now feel as if a great burden had been lifted from my heart, and I am now my same "old self" again. You speak of me as your "dearest friend". Johnie: you can't imagine what a pleasure and delight
