Dear Robert
I was just thinking over
old times & adventures which befell me in
[P-?] [Petersburg?] when a thought struck me that
I had promised to write you on my
arrival home. There is no excuse I can
give for not attending to it sooner you
must therefore charge it to the a/c [account?]
of friendship I receive the voluntary
penitence of a neglectfull [neglectful?] wretch -
as this letter or rather scroll is only
introductory to our future correspondence you
must pardon its shortness & set me
a good example by writing a long one in
reply. Direct your letters to me to the
care of [Ogilvie?] & Gibson [torn]
I have just wrote Lewis a letter therefore
I am out of time now it being almost
impossible for my dull brain to fill two letters
in succession. The next I write shall be
worthy the name of a letter. I shall look
for your letter in about two weeks
Yours most stupidly
P. Vankeuren [Vankuren?]

[addressed to?]
Mr Robert Love
