WRITTEN BY MARK S. GILMAN
TO HIS BROTHER ALFRED GILMAN

                                                    Nashua Dec 20 1830

Dear Brother

   I will thank you to send by the Stage
some patterns of French Merino of different colors with
the price and the names of the store where you get them

   We have nothing new here of any consequence- except
that Mr. Gay is to superintend this building of machinery
for the Jackson Company and will commence operating soon
Your friend Mr. Thayer copied the notice of the sale of the
J.H. Factories from a Boston paper without [c    ] or license
and charged 2.75 for it, - such a printer needs no devil 
for he will exceed the very prince of devils in proper persona

   Shall we see you here at christmas?  We are all well,
have not heard from any of our eastern Bretheren lately

                                             Affectionately Yours,
                                             M.S. Gilman
