To George B. Kinkead [1]

Geo. B. Kinkead, Esq. Springfield, Ills.
Lexington, Ky. June 16. 1854.

Dear Sir: Your letter of the 8th. Inst. to N. W. Edwards, enclosing a draft of between two and three hundred dollars (I write from memory only as to the amount) reached here a day or two since, and was, in Mr. Edwards' absence, taken from the P. office and opened by his brother. It was shown to me this morning, and will be kept at the store of which Mr. Edwards is a partner untilPage  220 his return, which will be about six weeks hence & when, doubtless, he will write you.

I ran my eye over the contents of your letter, & only have to say you do not seem disposed to compensate yourself very liberally for the separate service you did for me. Yours truly
