Samuel Downer Esq

My Dear Sir,

Your Circular of the 19th inst. inviting me “to attend a reunion of the Free Soilers of 1848.” is before me.

(DV) I will be there.

Altho [sic] there were a few black sheep in the flock, yet it was a political party of more real honesty and unselfish purpose, than I greatly fear, will ever again exist in this Country.

                                                Very truly yours

                                                Albert G. Browne
