    Cheraw Sc 4th August 1858 My Dear Brother I have concluded to take the liberty to ask you (if possible for you to do so) to do a favor for me. I am sorry to have to trouble you with it but the nature of the case must be my apology for doing so. Mr. Reilly promised last summer when he was over hear to give me this fall $1000�toward a start for me to commence business with which I expect to get when I go over to Columbia but as did not want to go empty handed I made arrangements (as I thought) to get $1000 from the bank at 90 ? time with father and brother Francis securities to be paid 1/2 at the time it was due and renew the balance and pay the whole at second payment but this week the note was presented and did not pass the Board which has rather broken all my calculations up as I had promised Cornelia before she left that I would take $1000 with me when I went over to Columbia. Now at the suggestion of mother I write to ask you can not you let me have $1000 at either 60 or 90 If you kindly can I will pay either the whole or half of it when it is due as I wish ? more to have it for appearance sake then to use if you can let me have it or get it for me the whole of them at home will take it as a great favor and to me it will amount to treble the amt in the end. Will you please be so kind as to write by tomorrow mail so that [End Page 1] I can get your letter on Friday morning whether I can get it or not and if I can please send me the amount by as soon as mail as you can. The reason I mention Fridays morning mail is that if I can not get it and have to on a begging to Columbia the sooner I go over will be the better and if I can't get it I will leave on Friday morning for Columbia but if I can I would defer my trip until sometime the week after but the sooner I can go over I would like it as Cornelia is getting rather unpatient for me to go over. If you can send me the amount you can send me either a check, certificate of Deposit on the amount in SC Bank Bills and if you can,t spare it only for a short time I will take it and not use it at all but if possible for me to do so I want to have that much with me when I go to Columbia. All the family at home are quite well and were half way looking for you up last night. Mrs. Blain and daughter arrived all safe Please reply if possible by Thursdays mail Pray for your affectionate brother Hugh P Lynch [End Page 2]
