Dear Sir:

With this I mail to your address a copy of the “Universalist” of this week, with a marked paragraph of interest somewhat personal to yourself.  It has my lot[?] in my opening […] to be an “original” Free-Soiler, and also one of that Buffalo “crowd” – the memory whereof is immortal. I hope my humble paragraph may please you 

Sincerely
