Transcript ( Seal ) ( AMIES ) (PhiladeIph i a) Lexington, July 31, 1837 Dea r Aust i n, I never thought until yesterday that you could oblige me by attending to a little business in Pittsburgh. I am certain you will be happy to do so if this does not arrive too I ate. Please call at the Book store of B. Patterson and see if they received some copies of my Texas -- 28 in number -- and if they are sold. If so, collect the money, deducting expenses and commissions, and bring it on. If not sold, bring them with you. Any money that will pay your expenses will assume. We are all well, and looking anxiously for your mother and self. It is warm, but pleasant here. Our house is just the thing now the weather is hot. Not a word from Texas since Col. Love came. With best love to mother -- Your affectionate Cousin M. A. Hoi Iey. Mrs. Austin Bryan [Note in lefthand margin] Mrs. Blair has been in town and regrets not seeing your mother. ( POSTMARK ) Mr. Austin Bryan [Obverse] (LEXINGTON KY.) Pittsburgh ( JUL 31 ) Pennsylvania
