Dear Jack,
Enclosed I send you a bill of the books ordered – Parrish’s Pharmacy & Ellis’ Formulary. You will perceive there is 75 ct in lacking to get Jackson’s letters in addition. You can either send the amount in postage stamps yourself or let me know & I will. Ellis, it seems, is worth $1.75. I hope you will receive your books safely. Let me know what you will do.
There is nothing new stirring here. It is still quite healthy, but getting a little more sickly.
I had a very severe spell, yesterday, of cholic & nettle rash, similar to the ‘attacks’ I had had before. Today I felt better. Your friends here are all well. Visit by next mail & give me all the news of your region.
                                                                 Your friend &c.
                                                                  L. S. Bingham
