My dear Cousin Nat

I am very much obliged to you for the apples & wild cat skin you sent me. Major Harman sent them to me the inst I left Orange Ct H for this city, & I brought them down with me - , that your other Cousins might enjoy them as well as myself - The cat skin is beautiful & will make a very good coat collar - Your cousins send their love to you, & with prayers for your health & happiness

I remain very truly Yours
