Wickford, R. I. Sept, 13, 1884

Dear Nephew and Family

  Notwithstanding I have written you and your Father last, receiving no answer, still the bonds of Kindred affection and the ties of brotherly love I trust are yet unsevered - - - - - - the approaching hour when the last one of my father's (once numerous) family will be called - - - - - only three of us are now left - - - - -
  Family well as usual. Frank and myself are like others growing old ---- I have been busy at carpentering and hanging paper through the summer. Millard has been Painting at New Port since May, is now at home preparing his boat Scholoping, wich is a great business here at this season of the year. Susey his wife has a little daughter Three month old. Sarah is now allmost six years old, a great comfort and


help to Frank. The youngest's name is Manerva Louisa - but none to me will ever fill the place of Abby. - - - - - - I am or shall send you a genealogical Record of the Gardners, and want you to send me the family Record as it is in the old Bible - - - - - - -

Your loveing uncle
