New York City
July 21st, 1858

My dear Niece,

I have been desiring to write to you for some time but have been prevented. I am now under the care of a physician by the name of Carnochan who is one of the professors in a medical college here. I hope that I am improving, but do not know how long I will remain here. Probably ten days longer, afterwards I expect to start on my visit to you but will delay sometime on the way I expect in Philadelphia, Baltimore, the Glades, &c.

Your Aunt Anna is quite well and we are seeing many pretty things here. Give my love and your Aunt's to all the family, and write to me as soon as you receive this. Direct your letter to New York City.

Your affectionate Uncle,
