Col James Sykes
As you are the agent for Dr. Frank Sykes, guardian of the minor heirs of Dr Sam B Malone, Decd, I write to say I am unwilling to keep the girl (Tildy-Ann) belonging to one of said heirs. I agreed to keep her this year free of hire (save for her food & clothes &c. If however you wish it, & are willing to let her remain on the same terms I will agree to it, because I dislike much to part her from her two little children. I would however much prefer to purchase her or have her taken away if you do not agree to her remaining free of any hire. Let me hear from you.
