Enclosed I send you seccond [second?]
of Exchange for one hundred and sixty pounds
ten shillings, six pence, hoping that the first arrived
in due time, superceding the necessity of this. The
day after I wrote you last, Mr. Warnock and myself
put up a very neat white slab at the grave of your
lamented son. I remarked, as we left the grave that
we had performed the last sad tribute of respect to
the lamented dead, our mutual friend and companion
Mr. W. [Warnock?] left last week for Shasta, some 200
miles up the Sacramento. He will write me when he
gets settled. Wishing yourself and family health &
all the other blessings of our common Parent, I remain
