[2]Osgood & Smith called me aside one day and told me that they wished me to stay with them and gave me the privilege of changing the machinery wherever I could improve it. And I am sure that they will be pleased to get another steady [Setchman?] I would have no difficulty in finding a job for half a dozen like youI send you tonight $25 I would send more but I have lent a sick man $50 and another $10 a few days ago but I can send you ten dollars a week as long as you like if you need it. ------------------The man who used to be foreman in our shop is now partner in a hub & spoke factory in Cleveland Ohio. Now Cleveland is a health- ier and prettier town than this and you might if you like call there and tell Mr Rothrock that I advised you to call there and seek a job because that I was afraid you might have fever and ague in Indianapolis but if you do not feel inclined to go there or if when you do go you find that matters are not very favorable come here at once
