Stevinson, Ala

Dear Father,

I red  your letter for Oct 24th containing cashiers check for 150$ last night. Notwithstanding my letter of Nov 10 I think that I may have to use it, but whether I do or nor I am equally grateful for your kindness in sending it to me. Should I not use it I will send it to you.

I am still at the hospital though much better. Nothing will I think be done at present. […]

With much love, Your Son

James D. Fessenden to his father, William Pitt Fessenden [Fessenden Collection]
