My dear Cousin Nat

I am very much obliged to you for the apples & wild cat skin you sent me.  Major Harman sent them to me the  inst I left Orange CtH for this city, & I brought them down with me  -, that your other Cousins might enjoy them as well as myself -- The cat skin is beautiful & will make a very good coat collar -- Your cousins send their love to you, & with prayers for your health & happiness


I remain very truly


R E Lee
