My dear Grand Daughter
Mary O. Chase!
I write these lines in your presence though you are unconscious of my addressing you
When you leave me today or tomow[sic], or on Monday next, it will be I fear for the last time that we bid each other Adieu.
Accept the inclosed a very small token of my love for you (38) Would it were ten times as great a sum
It may serve to bear your expenses (in part) when returning to Steubenville to see the best of parents.
If the blessing of your aged Grand Father mean the prayer of faith in Jesus Christ offered in sincerity for your temporal & eternal happiness you may be assured of it when you read your Father’s and Grand Fathers name
