Auburn April 2 1860
Rev. B. Griffith
Dear brother you se I have done but little this month money is still more scarce and were it not that the few books I am able to sell are lent out from one family to another I would be discouraged but I hope good is being done, A religious discourse may not be reported as a sermon, nor praying with families be reported as prayer meetings held. I have no suitable bible to supply the family I found destitute but gave them two small books with a promise of a bible hereafter I expect to go down to Kansas City in a few days when I will send on some money
Respectfully you Brother
Robt. Simerwell
