Dear Cousin
 
   I received your letter Dated Jany 3rd
in answer to mine, and was very glad to hear
that you were a printing a paper there, and hope
you will find a sufficient number of subscribers to
make it profitable. I received also three numbers of
your paper, which I am very much pleased with
and supposing that, the more subscribers the better.
I have obtained four in this place and have enclosed the
amount in this letter. You may direct them to the
Post Master Levant, M.E. They wish to have the back
numbers sent. I am much obliged to you for sending
me your paper, and hope I shall have it in my power
to repay you for your kindness. You inquired about this
place, I cannot say much in its favor. There is but little
society here, and a very little literacy taste as you
will perceive by the small number of subscribers which I have
obtained, however, this is a place of considerable business
and not the worst place that ever was that is
all I can say about it. I hope you will meet
with success, in all your laudable undertakings.
Charles, I understand will leave Dixmont and remove
to Bangor in June next and go in to practice with
Father. My business is such that I cannot write any more at
present. I shall be glad to hear from you often. Give 
my love to all enquiring Friends and except the
same from you affectionate cousin
