Dear Brother

I now write you a few lines to let you know that I received your letter and was glad to
hear you were well. As we are all here at present. you said you hoped Pat was well is that all
you know about him and you So close By. Edward I have a Curious feeling about Pat. I Don’t
know what makes it Seem as if i Should hear bad news any Day I hope him and his family are all
Well. I am glad the weather is fine. I hope the Smelts are running thick. Edward what kind of
Claim is that of Linches i received a Notice yesterday from Edward Williston it is as Long as
myself and Sets Forward Some of the most Curious Claims i ever Saw do you know anything
about them. I think it is fraud or Blackmail, and Don’t let it be allowed. I don’t believe John
owed any body when he had always plenty of money in his Pockets
I wish you had Done as i wanted you to and the Linches might whistle as for the Police
man i told you that was what he was going to Do. Linch also States that John Signed his name
with a X Well Ed you know better you know John Could write. Please look up his Books and
papers and Prove this to be a falsehood I think John Flannigan Could prove this for he was the
last John went to School to this Linch affair must be a forgery I am going to write to Winslow
you Said nothing in your letter about how you were getting along.
I must Conclude by hoping you had a Merry Christmas and Wishing you a happy New
years I give kind Regards to all my Friends Ever your Brother

Thos. McCarthy
