Dr Sir

I have been confined for these three months unable to assist
myself in any manner what ever, and in want of almost of everything that
might contribute to my relief. I have now to request the favor of you to send
me by the post 4 oz opium for such a thing cannot be procured here. In
order that I may be sure of Receiving it you will direct to Mr. John Hull
Kilmarnock Lancaster, and on the inside cover to me to the care of as above.
I am unable to sit up longer. With the mo Sincere Respect I am DSir

Yours Mo Sincerely

Gawin Corbin

God grant I was near you
