29 6th AVENUE, NEW YORK, May 24th, 1854.
MY DEAR MR. Still -Your kind letter of the 22d inst has come to hand and I have to thank you for your offices of benevolence to my bone and my flesh, I have had the pleasure of doing a little for your brother Peter, but I do not think it an offset. My burden has been great about these brethren. I hope they have started on to me. Many thanks, my good friend. Yours Truly. J. W. C. PENNINGTON.
