                                              Bangor May 20th 1833

My dear Cousin

I take this opportunity to write to you
as I cannot see you at present but hope to see you
soon in August. I expect to come to Boston &
Lowell. To Boston to see the place and to Lowell
to see you and the rest of the folks. I shall not
stay but a few day at either place.

I want to see very much indeed. What is
the stage fare now from Lowell to Boston and where
shall I go to in Boston to find the stage. I shall
make my way to Lowell as soon as possible after I
get to Boston. I hope I shall find you all well.
Joseph will be married soon. I hear that you
are to be married soon too. You must excuse
the shortness of my letter and write an answer much
longer to make up. I wish you would send
me your paper and I will pay you for it
when I come to see you. I work with Wm[-----?] now
he gives me one Hundred Dollars a year. Mr. Hill
give me 35 dollars. give my love to all
the folks excepting the same

From your ever affect. Cousin
Wm. A. Gilman
Alfred Gilman

P. S.   Please to excuse my bad writing as
the pen is not the [----?] [----?]

Yours    Wm. A. Gilman
