An unusual letter well written from brother to brother dated May 18th 1856 in the city of Canonsburg located in Washington County, Pa. Writer’s flourishing comments speaks of his new residence in Canonsburg and how there are about 800 inhabitants with four central churches. And that he has in turn joined a church in which he refers to it as a “fraternal type of organization”. Though the letter becomes a bit more interesting through the second page as he comments to his brother; Question: Do you still have to sleep with that lousy fellow? Didn't things look queer when you first went home? I know they did for me. The elder Brother informs his brother to behave like a Christian and if he has to sleep with that lousy fellow he should repeat the following prayer:

"Now I lay me down to sleep Bedbugs and LICE begin to Creep if they should bite before I wake I pray the lord their lives to take." I have photographed each page in natural sequence so you may read the letter in full. Writers last name appears to be Walson? Three and one-half pages with each page being 5' x 8 inches.
