and thanking her for it you
know exactly what kind
of a letter I mean, they
invited me to have you
come down here and
stay with them. But the
letter you must write in
a [?] style. Mrs. C is a
full blooded Yankee and
prides herself on the fact
the girls are of the sane
 Now I have made
one proposition I will make
the other I will take one
of the young ladies off of
the Judges hands that is ti
say I will petition to her
to have her name changed,
I have promised faithfully
in case of sickness to go there
I dont know but that I
would like to get sick
dont forget to write the
letter direct
         Mrs ^Judge Thomas^Mary Coldwell
Care of             } Shelbyville
Judge Caldwell  }   Tenn
Y             our Son
                   Charlie Aleshire

I am well, you can direct to Mrs. Judge Thomas
or Mrs. Mary as you please I think
the former better.

(text written diagonally over text)
If you address your letter
Mrs Judge than Thomas Coldwell leave
off the care of Judge Coldwell
but if you address it other
wise address in care
