    Cheraw 21 Sept 1858 Rt Revd & Dearest Brother I received your kind letter with the enclosure which I handed to illegible who drives me to say to you that it would afford in much pleasure if possible to further any desire you might make of him, and that no reference would be necessary in a recommendation coming from you. Only a few days before, he had recommended for the situation Mr f. Sumter who had applied to him for the same post - that to give a like letter to another would impair the strength of the recommendation of either from him. However to say, to you that he will be in Washington before the appointment is made and if anything shall transpire, or rather if[End Page 1] Mr Sumter does not receive the appointment, he will then with pleasure do all he can for, your friend, the gentleman you recommend. He thinks however the claims of Mr Sumter will secure his appointment to which as the matter stands the illegible must illegible his illegible. Begging me to apprise you of his high esteem and earnest disposition as above expected, to serve your wish - in the want Mr S. does not become the occupant. Bro Hugh arrived home on Friday night, since when he has been confined to his room. I have not yet seen him - He was surely unfortunate, it is with sorrow i learn of his course. I think this the first accident of the kind that has occurred to him since opening business on his[End Page 2] own account, It is a pity his wife did not accompany him to the city, her influence perhaps would have restrained him - As a young Merchant, mishaps of this kind have anything but an encouraging influence - I fear he has lost much in that way, as in others. A strict attention & promptness may restore confidence, if shaken, -It will require good resolutions, which I sincerely hope he will have strength to keep, for the others. Henrietta & children expect to go down on Wednesday next, but will write the day before leaving. All well (D.G.) and join in love to you - also to Mrs Blain & Miss Louisa. I am glad to say I am quite well again - Pray for your aff Bro. Francis Rt Revd Dr Lynch Charleston S.C.[End Page 3] 21 Sept 1858 Francis Lynch Cheraw S.C.[End Page 4]
