My Dear Sir,

I am sorry for the trouble and delay my careless manner or writing has caused. In view of the fact that we have no organization at Deshler yet - I and the word "Coming" Presbyterian Church - and I hope it will come on in due time with the coming (let us hope) wealth and population of the future City of Deshler. Let the deed be made, if you please, to Rev. Henry M. MacCracken of Toledo and Rev. Perry C. Baldwin of Maumee City to hold in trust for the First Presbyterian Church of Deshler, Henry County, Ohio.

Very Truly P.C. Baldwin

P.S. you have No of Lot - 138 and 139 all right.

Dear Sir, our engineer is here making an addition to the plat of the town and I did not know but your folks would like to add some on the south side, above the Reservoir and if you do It could be added without so much expense, as to make a separate addition and you could sell quite a no. of lots over there.

My wife died on tuesday morning 17th after you was here and the babe has been given up twice but is now getting along, and I think will get well. This leaves me in bad shape - and have not been able to get along as well with those buildings as I should under other circumstances.

Hoping to hear from you soon I remain yours
