TranscriptLetter from Catherine Gallagher
Addressed to: Mr. Thomas Gallagher, care of Mr. Patrick
Sharky, Cincinatta [Cincinnati?] Ohio US

Brockville 29 April 1847

My dear Brother
I have just received a letter from my father in which
he says our friends are all well. It gives me great
pleasure to know where you are, that I might at all events
have the pleasure of writing to you. I don't intend
to say much until I receive an answer to this in order
that I may then be perfectly sure where you are -

My brother John has been here since the First of March,
and left yesterday for Black Brook, State of New York. As
soon as he gets through with some business then he will
return to this [place?] about the 1st of June. John and
I have been very uneasy on account of not knowing your
whereabouts. You write therefore on receipt of this.
Write and say what you would think of John and I going to
where you are. Write me fully and let me know how you
are getting on.

Nothing further until I receive your answer which I hope
will be without delay.
And remain
My dear Brother
Your affectionate Sister
Catherine Gallagher.

Direct your Letter to me Care of
Mr. Christopher Greene
Canada West
