My dear [Junius?],

I wish to introduce to you
and through you to the best men
and women of Galesburg the brave
Mr Vere Foster. The preceding pages
will show somewhat of the
purpose of Mr Foster's travel in
the west at this time. He has kindly
assumed, at his own expense all
the hardship of a [wandering?] winter
journey which but for him I should
have been compelled to undertake
myself. I owe him therefore double
thanks and so commend him to
you every way. Please serve his pu-poses [purposes?]
in any way that you can
and believe me your Aff. [Affectionate?] Aunt
E W Farnham
Mr [Junius?] B. Roberts
Galesburg [?]
