WRITTEN BY DANIEL SPENCER
TO HIS BROTHER MOSES GILMAN, JR.

Sunday Eve Nov 16th 1845

Brother M; (...) T.C. has got a job of building a three story mill 64 ft by 32 at Merrimack N H 6 or 8 miles above Nashua. Church has been there about a fortnight. He talks of leaving us soon thinking he can earn more some where else. To close I cannot refrain from giving you a Specimen of Uncle’s manner of governing his children. At supper this evening Elizabeth by design or accident throwed her tin plate on the floor & the following was the language which he used "God damn your little pluck to hell what in damnation do you mean." (...)

Yours truly D.S.G. written in haste
