My Dear Henry
I am too much excited
to write discretely but I wish to say
to you that at every application al-
most I make to Grier
Birth: 1802-09-27 Death: 1878-12-20
for money
to carry on my building operations
he tells me there is none, and makes
use of expressions at least wounding
to my pride and as I firmly believe
in derogations of my rights,
Augustus
Birth: 1820-05-18 Death: 1889-05-08
and Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
could be
paid their shares, Say to me
Henry that you do not believe
me either worthy of equal consid-
eration unworthy of the control and
custody of one twentieth of my Fathers
Birth: 1768-12-05 Death: 1849-08-24

estate and unworthy to act the
part of a Father to my own
children
x Birth: 1853-09-21  Death: 1877-10-20  Birth: 1844-11-20  Death: 1917-01-31  Birth: 1840-11-08  Death: 1910-11-28  Birth: 1838-04-16  Death: 1916-02-22  Birth: 1835-01-09  Death: 1926  Birth: 1833-06-08  Death: 1891-06-12 
, Say this openly and before
the world, I will deny it but say
it and you can then take my
Five eldest children their property

of every name into your own Keeping
I will take my wife
Birth: 1824-02-11 Death: 1895
and child dear
to me as your own and worthy of
all confidence and seek among
stranger myself a stranger and an alien
to my kindred a [ leverhood ]
