Dear Joseph
Your kind note duly to hand for
which I am much obliged as I wrote last I was
expecting to hear from you for some time. I am
glad to find you have left Mapeys though perhaps he is the
discontent one of the party although
[----side?] he "done me honor" in the vest & pantaloons,
I got from him in Philadelphia your call just
tell him so first time you come across him. No
doubt Alicia will write me all Uncle Jas kind
remarks upon his two dutiful Nephews when
I hear them I will report progress What a
kind uncle he is and what affectionate relations
we are in that City of Brotherly Love. I hope you
like your situation and that you are getting up
were I you I would not make myself uncaring about
parties at home if they choose to sacrifice by selling
I would let them hear the birds. What I mean is I
would not inconvenience myself [--?] their [--?] as you
will just have as much thanks one way as another
I write this letter from 50 West Mount St. my office
as Bookkeeper in a Pork packers Establishment
I am still staying with Chapman and we are the
same sincere friends as ever. Tho [Thomas?] Mercer
is gone out West where I am not at present aware.
I heard Dr Dixon preach in this city on Sunday week.
He is quietly failed during the last 10 years
of course you are a Church Member. I am not
and mostly attend the Episcopalian Churches
There is nothing here new only Business is dull
Our business is just closing for the season
and going I suppose over till the Fall
I have hunted up Mrs. Kelly's son and sent her
a letter from him. he is living in Alabama
and from all I know has been a hard liver
Remember me to my affect [affectionate?] Uncle Aunt Cousins
Your sincere & affect [affectionate?] cousin
W Montgomery
