Title Forty-niner in Utah, page 038
Description An Englishman in New York City N. Y. To state my own experience with one exception I have sold my few paintings at prices that would do little more than pay for colors & canvass. I am making the letters sent by this Packet rather a heavy affair, so this fact & the strong feeling under which I write must be my apology for the hosts of blunders I am conscious you will find in this sheet; I feel as though I was again saying good bye & it revives a reminiscence of the most solemn & important event that has ever occurred to me; Again my dear Brothers & Sisters do I say farewell with the heartfelt prayer that the God whom you love & serve may continue to bless & protect both you Aunt & Father to the latest period of your lives. Should it not be, that we again meet undivided in this world may we so live that we shall meet in a better & purer state of exis- tence; this is the wish & I trust will be the aim of Your Affectionate Brother John Hudson I? S. Please give my best love to Aunt & say that notwithstanding I have directed no particular letter to her, I hope that this fact will in no way detract from the interest she will feel & that I she should feel in her Affect- Nephew JH I? S. I find that there would be considerable expense in sending the dag-[uerreotype] by post, So a Mr Platt Merchant will in April take charge of the Portrait & take to Mr R. Hill. JH Remember me affectionately to Edwd Theep say I have received his delightful letter & that I much regret that a press of business prevents me from answering immediately Please show him my journal when transmitted to you JH 38
