Auburn Nov 30th
Dear Fred
Mother
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
said that you spoke
to her about a place that you thought you
could get for me in the Journal Office and as
I have been thinking some of leaving my place
here I thought I would ask you something about
it. Can you tell any where near what I would
get or what I would have to do if I could
get the place. I hardly think that I shall
stay with Barnes
Birth: 1824 Death: 1867
this winter for several reasons
one of them is that he wants me to work untill
11 or 12 every night and also all day Sunday.
The latter of which I will not do any way

two years. I should rathe[ r ]

Supplied

Reason: hole
get another place here
if possible but I do not think there is much
chance of my finding one this winter.
I thought it would do no harm to find out
what I could do even if I did not leave Auburn
Remember me to Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
and all of the folks
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

Your Affectionate Brother
