Mrs E.P. Nichols,


            Dear Madam,


                            My son William
writes to tell me of your ex
treme
kindness towards him
in England, and I am sure
I am at a loss to know exactly
how to thank you


His Father & myself have tried
to pursuade him to remain
a short time longer in the
old Country, that is to say,
if he could procure employ-
ment
, it being so very much
easier for a man of color
0002
to succeed in the race of life
particularly if he has in
any way had much to do
with politics, the Southrons
being still very much envenom-
ed
towards men of that class
We were very pleased to hear
that you were still spared
to carry on your long
life of kindness & use[-]
fulness
to the needy, &
trust that you may live
many years longer.


                    I remain,
            Your obedient Servant,
                        Ellen Craft  .
