Dear Sir

Yours of the 4th is at hand. Accept thanks for those stamps. Did I send the money for them? I believe I forgot to put it in & will put it in this.

Would be thankful for some more of those S.S Texts for the S Schools at Oxford and Covington. Schools flourishing day & night Have suspended school for next week to repair house at Covington.
One man has threatened to kill me and three that I met last night coming from night school called out there's that d--d Yankee lets kill him.

Transcription Notes:
S.S. or S.School = Sunday School
