Dear Brother,
I have not receivd any word from Long Island in some time. I recivd a letter from Lettyann in New York a short time since she informd me that she understood you had been in New York four or five weeks, but she did not know you was there untill you had gone away, She was informd you was there with a doctor. I feel anscious to know how your eye does.
Smith and myself went over to Orange County last Monday and returnd on Wednesday. I presume there will be no failure on Mr Conklins part. I want you to come up if possible in time to help fix the business all straight as you know the situation as well as I can tell you. I want no disappointment on my part. I presume you recievd a letter I wrote a few days after the sale. If your health will not admit of your' comeing to Milford, I await you to contrive the business so that there will be no failure on my part.
We have paid very near all demands except yours and there is hardly money enough on hand to pay you untill more property is sold, I expect the $2200 is ready to be paid on the first day of April. I did not see Mr Conklin but I understood the money was ready. All that will be for me to do is to give him a title and possesion.
I wish you would write soon to let me know how you all do and what you think about coming up. I dont know why the deed cant be made out and all things ready to deliver on the first day of April. If you should come up at any time, I did not like to send you any money by mail for fear of failure and expecting you up about six hundred dollars is lying on hand,
We are all well. I wrote a letter to father a short time since.
Yours Affectionately Seth Williamson
