here but there is business anuff [enough?] for
such a stout young man; I aprehend [apprehend?] would make
better out of farming if you came, loosing [losing?] no time
in coming out to this part of the country where
I live; I know of no other place in this country for a young
man to get into business. Enquire for Greensburg in
Westmoreland (?) County.
