Mouth of Sweet Water Apl. [April] 23rd 1839
Dear Charles

I returned yesterday from Chattanooga and found George sick-- he was taken on Friday evening_ Doctor Montgomery was to see him on Saturday_ after which he was much better_ yesterday not so well_ kept his bed_ to day he says he feels a little better & sits up.

I have been to see Dr. Montgomery to day_ he thinks G's [George's] situation dangerous and advised me to send [added: for] you_ he will come to see G. so son as he can leave Mrs Charles Toliver whom he considered dying._ The Dr says it is scarlet fever that Geo [George] has._ he complains of his throat, breast and back.

Henry I. left Chattanooga last Thursday morning in fine health & spirits, after purchasing some real estate in the city._

I might probably add something more but that I expect you will come to see Geo. & Ellick can probably tell you the balance

Give our love to all the family

A.J. Lenoir
Chas [Charles]. F Welcker Esqr [Esquire]
