Clarksville 24 Aug 1868
My Dear Friend
In writing you a few days ago
to pay from the funds in your hands to each of my
nieces Grace and Margaret M'Whinny [McWhinney?] 40œ
Forty Pounds Sterling, I entirely failed to consider
it possible that since the first of January you
might have advanced them some part of the 20œ
former allowance - My intention was to double
that amount the present year, as I hope the figures
in the estimate may have induced you to conclude -
My intention was to add 20œ each to the allowances
and I am sure that construction will be satisfactory
to them on sight of this letter.
Your attached friend
at present in bed from [crysip-eley?] [in?] [by?]
