Mrs. E. P. Nichols,
I have taken
the liberty of dropping you a line
to ask you if you will grant me one
more favor and that is the sum of
£3. and if ever I apply to you
again for assistance I trust you
will not answer my application.
I should have gone to America
before this but my brother wrote
me telling me it was advisable
for me to stay here awhile yet
on ℀. of some circumstances over
which I had no control.
I trust his letter to you was
Hoping your health remains good
& to hear from you soon, also
craving your forgiveness for
annoying you so much.
Yr. obt. servant,
I purpose leaving London in the summer or Autumn
