say – that I should like
to have a settlement
of my portion of Grand-
Pas' Seward's
Birth: 1768-12-05 Death: 1849-08-24
Estate:
Mr Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
declines
to interest himself in

past since I became
of age, & I think I
may, without seeming
impatient, ask, that
a settlement be made:
Please remember kindly

& the family
Your affectionate niece
