Mr. Robert Campbell
from St. Louis
Enquire in Philadelphia

Saint Louis January 21st 1840

Mr. Robert Campbell
Dear Sir
This will be handed you by my valued friend, Mr. R.G. Ewing, a highly respectable young lawyer of this state, who visits the eastern cities with the view of forming acquaintances should he have the good fortune to meet with you. My attention shown him will be thankfully acknowledged, but I shall always feel happy to reciprocate with you, when ever an opportunity should offer.

Truly your friend
John D. Agnew

P.S. A scarcity of money still prevails among us. Species down by 5 per cent, exchange in Baltim & Phila 3/2 per cent & N York & Boston 1 percent. E. Walsh gets married in a few days to a Miss Duman.
