Abstract

"Having joined some friends in an effort to raise funds for the Construction of a Free Hospital it becomes my duty to levy a tax upon my personal friends. In addition to the sale of a certain number of tickets I am expected to obtain voluntary cash contributions. ### 'A word to the wise is sufficient.' ### But that you may have some gauge by which to measure my expectations I will add that a total remittance in response to this of ten dollars will be received with pleasure and twenty-five will be simply magnificent as all this is only the preamble of a grand fair to be given for the same prupose at [unclear] I am to assist and to which you are expected to [unclear] (but that I do not think you will). I am [unclear] making more heavy draft on [unclear] and good nature." Yours sincerely, Maggie K. Johnson DOCKET: [$75?]
