June 14, 1851 letter to Luke Keith from Marion Tomlinson

June 14, 1851

To: Charles Luke Keith Jr., Galesburg, MI

From: George Tomlinson, Port Washington, WI

Marion is leaving for Michigan on Monday night and George would like someone to meet her at the depot.

Port Washington June 14, 1851

Luke C. Keith, Esq.

Marion[1] behaves so I start her to Michigan. She expects to start from here Monday night next the (16th inst). If nothing happens she will be at Galesburg on the Wednesday morning train. I suppose the boats and trains run in connection so there will be no delay – if there should happen to be a delay she may not arrive till night. If any thing happens here so she does not start Monday I will write again. As she will be alone I hope it will be convenient for you to meet her at the Depot.

Marion will give you the news.

Truly yours

Geo. Tomlinson

[1] George’s wife, Marion (Sprague) Tomlinson
