Transcript

I put the following on a separate page that it may not be seen by those to whom the letter may be [showed].

If my salary should be paid at the Convention without [deficit], I wish you to state that I give $500 of it to the Missionary & Ed. Committees to be equally divided, & I hereby authorise the Treasury to pay it to you for those [objects]. Whatever amount shall be paid at the Conv. beyond 2500, I wish so [given]. Should the payment fall short of 2500, then I wish the Convention informed that I release all this from all obligation to pay any thing beyond 2200 for the year 1861-2. All this is in consideration of my having been absent so much of the year. But if you & my good friends such as [L.] W. Andrews, Dr. Wing, Mr. McElroy etc., think the letter part of the arrangement, that is, the release, not wise, or expedient, then let it not be done.
