Parkville Mo June 7/59
I. T. Goodnow Esq New York City
Dear Sir.
Yours from St Louis was received. I regret that I did not see you. It will be entirely out of my power to pay much of any thing this season. I cannot collect enough to meet my present Liabilities here. Times are so hard & this section have not been benefitted by Pikes Peak emigration. I am willing to sell any of my Manhattan property at a fair price to pay my subscription. That Manhattan property has been a continual drain on me from the beginning & I am getting tired particularly when pressed at home. I think you are too fast That country hardly wants a college yet. We perhaps had better have waited until time are better. Yet under the circumstances If you can financier it through you will be certainly be entitled to great Credit. It is a noble enterprise and where sure foundation ought to be laid for the future. The future is of Great promise I shall be happy to aid you as soon as I am able for I have confidence. Respectfully Geo S Park
