Miss Fawcett, care Mrs. Gauss, St. Charles, Mo

St. Louis Ap. 21. 1863

Dear Miss Fawcett,

Mrs. Gauss of this City was out to see us last week and kindly offered Mrs. Lewis to send up the Granike[?] Rose she had raised for your sister; she sent out for it this morning and I am happy to avail my self of the opportunity to make our respects to yourself and Mrs. Gauss. Mrs. Lewis has been quite sick for a few days but is much better now. We hear occasionally from you through Mrs. Douglass or Mrs. Gauss and we hope still to have the pleasure of seeing you again in St. Louis at some time for I assure you we remember with much gratification your sojourn with us and should be most happy to renew the acquaintance then commenced. We noticed in the paper an advertisement by Mr. Pea of St. Charles offering to send seeds for a Coffee plant. I forget the name of the bean but think it was called Indian Coffee, to any one who applied for it. We would like to get a few seeds but did not know how to get them brought. Would it be too much trouble to you to send them to Mrs. Gauss of St. Louis if we write and ask him to send them to you? We should be much obliged. My sisters join with me sending best regards. The man is waitg and I must close this hurried scratch.

Yours with much esteem

Pamela H. Cowan[1]
