Scope & Content:

Tell Douglas [Lane ?] I will bring his gun[?]. The clothes I promised him were purchased before I left Chicago to be sent at once. I hope he gets them soon an that they suit[?]. Excuse haste. Love to Emma and all there. Ever your loving shepherd. Cyrus" [Note: This is the text of the entire letter.
