John A. Peters Transcript #2

Bangor 16 April 1864

Bro. John

I have written on great matters. Now for some little ones.  A man great in little matters as well as great matters is a great & good man indeed.

1st John F. Godfrey bought a horse of Black Hawk Putnam, shortly before [he] went away. Sued Hawk in a word, a cheat. Let some one in your concern inquire whether or no Godfrey took horse off, or where horse now is, and write me. And when you write, say whether there is a barber in Farmington, where I have got to go next week, which the man under your Stanley House can tell you. I don’t want to fix up my old razor unless necessary. T. N. White left his love for this world and has gone on to another one.

Yours &c.
