In the Name of Allah The All-Merciful.


To Margaret the beloved, renewed greetings and implorations.


What in the blessed name has become of or overcome the bedoted One? Behold the ancient a[nd] tottering bard of the Catskills is left desolate in silence, after having been encouraged, incited, promised, connived at, induced, and set by example to WRITE [] that is to correspond with in epistolary ways, by means of Post by form of G.R.2 and U.S.A., the aforesaid Beloved the only Margaret!

Now therefore it behoves her to put pen to paper or finger tips to typewriter as a means of grace in a work of mercy to her perishing.
