W2966 TO REV. THOMAS BAKER from William Moore
Sep 19 1864
To: Rev. Thomas Baker [Newmarket, Ontario]
From: Wheat Seminary, Princeton, N.J [New Jersey]

My dear Mr. Baker,

I send you the enclosed pictures as a feeble exprefsion [sic] of my gratitude for the Christian sympathy & friendship I received at your hands in my hour of isolation & lonelinefs [sic]. Though our acquaintance was measured by a few short weeks it has laid the foundation of a regard which can only terminate with time. I only speak the truth when I say that the hours spent in the bosom of your family will ever be remembered as among the happiest of my life.

You will also accept my heartfelt thanks for your handsome gift--I shall preserve it as a token of your regard and endeavour to show my appreciation of your friendship by a diligent study of its contents. The session upon which we have now entered has been very pleasant & thanks to kind Providence I now find myself in the enjoyment of good health. We have recently lost another of our classmates by death--surely in the midst of life we are in death.

Please give my love to Mrs. Baker & Mary.

Hoping that both yourself and family may ever enjoy all the blefsings [sic] which flow from the [ad??]mifsion of the Comforter

I am

Yours very sincerely

William Moore
