1876 We are all pretty well here

Paterson, New Jersey December 5th 1876 to Monroe, Louisiana

Garret Hopper Demarest to his nephew James and niece Georgiana

Mr. James Garret Van Emburgh and Sister

I send you under this date a Post Office order from your Grandma Demarest [Catherine Van Emburgh Demarest] for fifteen dollars. Which she hopes will be made good use of. She says she will have no more money coming in before Spring so you may hardly expect more from her before that time. We are all pretty well here, and hope you are also.


Garret H. Demarest

[continued on back]

When you receive the money order please write me immediately so that I may know.

Please sign the receipt which I enclose and return to me. The one for the first and also for this one. so that I may have something to show that you have received the money
