[Transcript]
me on the subject that he had too much on hand to say more then, by description Mr Brooks is over fifty years old. I believe he is your Uncle Abijah. I had thought it was his Son your Cousin, but I believe him to be your Uncle, if you ever receive this and do not see me again communicate my thanks to them, as you may be left alone or nearly so, it may be well for you to ascertain all about [it?]. God Bless you and preserve you from trouble and danger.

Affectionately your
Husband
E W Fuller
