Mr. Robert Campbell
Philad - May 26, 1841
This will be handed you by Patrick Bradley who leaves here today, in company with his brother (who arrived here last week from Ireland), for St. Louis.
I feel assured that it requires no recommendation from me to obtain your best exertions for both Patrick and his brother. We know their honest parentage and are acquainted with the steadiness + sobriety of Patrick. In your progressing section of country they can do much better than if they remained in our crowded + retrograding city. They are young + strong. let them only have a chance of using both to advantage + I have no fears for them.
Very truly - yr brother
