Dear Brother,
On hearing of your arrival safely at
home, I am seated again to write
a few lines for your benefit.
Though am somewhat at a loss to
know what to communicate. the day
you left here for Galveston, which
was on the 4th, the fire company number
six at Dickinson raised a row
with two or three of the C C boys,
which terminated in one man
being mortally wounded & another
killed. also a young infant being struck
with a base ball bat on back of neck
it being badly hurt or killed. heard some
few days since that the baby died. also
heard it contradicted the one killed
have also heard was done by train
[next two lines torn away]
