Dear Miss Gass
What if you
shd [should?] set about getting
a new Pulpit Bible
for bladymore Church?
you require it. A beautiful
one can be got for
#1- 5- Open a subscription
List I put my name
down for 2/6. Just a
little quiet effort among a
few wld [would?] accomplish it, &
it wld [would?] be a most pleasant reflection
to yourself, in particular
afterwards. I have mentioned
the matter to no one &
if you cld [could?] surprise the
congregation some Sab. [Sabbath?]
morning by its presence on
the pulpit it might do
no harm.
I learned while there you were
one of the most influential,
you will therefore excuse

Hoping to have you calling
upon me soon for
my subscription believe me
faithfully & sincerely
