W-MCP4-6.229 TO DR. CALVIN MCQUESTEN from his cousin [N.D.?] Fisher
Nov 25 1836
To: Dr. Calvin McQuesten, Brockport, New York, [U.S.A.]
From: Warsaw, [New York, U.S.A.]1

Cousin C. McQuesten,

James informs me that you want some [other?] hundred & twenty or thirty dollars in about a month. I have just written to H.H. Smith of Youngstown who is owing me $150 to deposit the same in [Oslems?] Bank which I suppose will be done soon. When I receive an answer from him I will let you know how soon the money can be had and you can get it I suppose from that bank. I have a hundred and eighty dollars or from $180 to $200 in LeRoy, which I can command at almost any time by giving a weeks notice. You let me know what you want, and I will assist you as far as I can.

My lady sends her respects to you & yours,

With esteem,

[N.D.?] Fisher
