the negroes were scared (of course) and the whole crew
of the vessel put in the penetentiary [sic] for a long time, if
not for life. This is but another proof of the folly of
attempting to run off slaves form the South, and
I have made up my mind not to undertake it.
I do not think that Argus was put into my trunk as
it us nowhere to be found - I hope none of my friends
will be so inconsiderate as to send me any Anti-
Slavery papers. Lloyd says he wrote to Ann last
Sunday.. I saw nothing of uncle Charles on my
Route, but I saw our little R.W. Griswold in Phil-
adelphia and that was almost as _bad_.
Try to forgive me for writing such a looking
letter, for I am in a great hurry and cannot
find a good pen. Give my best love to all
the family and to my friends in general.
Tell Father not to hurt himself with work, and
do try to take care of thyself in that particular.
I am very thankful to the one who put those nuts in
My trunk whoever it was - I guess Lloyd and my-
self will have great times _breaking_ them. Please
say to George Reynolds that I will write him soon
and that I could find not violin music in New York
that was good. Do not fail to have some of the
family answer this soon. It is high time this thing
was brought to a close - so farewell for the present,

Thy Affectionate son
G.G. Robinson
