Apr 26 1839 Friday Evening
To: Margarette Lerned McQuesten Brockport New York
From: C. E. Fisher Warsaw New York

Warsaw, Friday Evening 26. Apl-1839.

Dear Cousin,

We heard by the way of your sister from N. Hampshire, that you proposed visiting them this summer. Sister Almira intends to go east sometime next month, and wishes to have your company if possible. Will you send us word when, and how, you intend to go. We have heard nothing from Canada, of particular interest recently. Peaceable that at present. Lucy is still with John, and so far as we know is very much at home. We hope their business prospects are brightening. Last week we received a paper from them, giving some interesting account of J.G. Parkers passage to England and his treatment since his arrival.1 Perhaps you have seen the same in the Rochester Gem. We feel deeply interested in the fate of so good a man. I should think he was very happy and all his treaty and privations, for he reposed his confidence upon the ruby duse foundation.

Our family are in usual health,
May we hear from you soon,
Respectfully your cousin,
C.E. Fisher.
