Dec 25th '52

[Page: 2]


Having examined the claims of this unfortunate man I am satisfied that his is a case that calls for compassion & aid

[Though] the sum demanded is so large as to look hopeless, yet if every man who is so happy as to be free, & have his own wife & children for his own, would give even twenty five cents, the sum might soon be raised.

"As ye would that men should do for you - do ye even so for them"

H.B. Stowe 10.00

⟨ I have carefully examined the papers of Mr Peter Still & fully concur in the above recommendation of Mrs Stowe Andover Dec. 25th 52 Wm B Brown. ⟩
