In a long letter which appears to have been written over the course of many months, Chase elaborates upon the conditions which led to his leaving Gambier for Michigan and the reasons he cannot return. He also describes the means by which he and his family have made a home for themselves in Gilead. Finally, he mourns the death of G. W. Marriott.
