Dear Sir

Please accept my thanks for your kind invitation to be present at a reunion of the Free Soil Party of 1848 at Melville Gardens on Thursday the ninth of August. I hope to be present on that occasion and meet some of the Old Soldiers who helped to fight the grand battles for freedom.

Faithfully Yrs[sic]
