Letter from David Barringer to "brother" - dated June 14, 1828

 
 
 

Lincoln County No. Carolina                      June 14th 1828

Dear Brother,

I embrace the present to write these lines to you and happy in having to inform you that myself and family are all enjoying a reasonable portion of good and no particular occurrence worth relating and making out as well as usual.  Father, mother, and family are all well and doing.  Old grand father Tipps and grand mother are enjoying a common share of good health for persons of their age though in the course of nature are becoming very frail and infirm.  As to brother Mathias we have had no certain information from him for nearly two years past he failing to write in that length of time except by accident by an acquaintance the account as far as it was favorable.

We have no particular occurrence in this country provision and other necessaries are cheap and plenty but a great scarcety of money which proves inconvenient for those involved in debt.

Your letter of the 2d of March last with Mr. Ratttiffs annexed dirrected or addressed to father where in I became a great part the subject of the letter is now before me I observe its contents and am very much surprised to hear the aggreevance that Mr. Rattiff never have received from me a reply in answer to his addressed to me.

 
 
 

 

 
 

I acknowledge the receipt of his to the number of four as well as the one from George Rattiff and to each I think I gave a satisfactory reply and for warded according to instruction directed to Charlestown SC by the mail.

I have never received one cent on the papers of Mr. R though I have used as far I knew all necessary exer-tions as will appear more esplicit in my letter ac-companaing this to your care addressed to Mr. Rattiff.

Mr Rattiff in his to father require the papers put into my hand I send you herin enclosed as far as I now recollect all the essential papers on the business accompanied with a copy of Mr. Spanns reply to me in writing on the subject.

Brother I want to prodeed with precaution so as not be involved in the business without any profit but rather a pretty heavey expence  I am willing that Mr. Rattiff may have his papers but before you give them I wish you to obtain from Mr. Rattif a receipt for them so as to operate against the receipt that I gave at ??Frankford.

I shall close for the present requesting you to write as speedily as convenient after the receipt of these lines and furnish me with all the information the business herein cited and withal how you and family are doing.

                                              Your affectionate brother
                                                               David Barringer 

 
 
 

 

 
 

P.S. I omitted to ansur your request to inform you where brother Mathias is living as far as we know he is living in the Vilage of Tuscalusia, Village Tuscalusia County, State of Alabama.

                                                                                   D.B.
