I left Ohio more than 5 months [ago] and have been in the "Church Home" in this city. I wrote from Ohio to my old rector Dr. Wyatt to use his influence to obtain admission for me in the "Widows Home" in this place, which he can do, but I must pay $150 on going there, this I cannot do without the assistance of a few friends, I now write this to ask you to aid me even in a small way. I have heard thru the Rev Mr Rankin of your presence in the city. The ladies of St Paul[']s Church pay a high board for me here. The managers are nearly all the children or grandchildren of my old friends, they take a great interest in me, and this is why I wish to remove the obligation by going where I will be cared for the rest of my life. I would be very much pleased to see you and Josephine here, all my relatives and many old friends visit me. I hope you will reply to this[;] if you do, direct to me "Church Home" Broadway, Baltimore.
Respectfully Maria Clemm
