[Editor’s Note: I searched the Connersville Times, published May 31, 1882, and nothing appears to have been published about Eugene. So it looks like he might have been saved from Uncle seeing whatever it was…]
Oakville May 29-82
I drop these lines for the purpose of telling you that—I am well, and also that you may do me a favor viz—There will be a clipping in the Con’ers’lle papers from “Summit—“ that I would rather Uncle would not see—so if you get the Times before he reads it please do not show it to him. I would rather have the pleasure of telling him myself in a year or so. It may not be in C— papers but as it is in the N—Castle paper the C—papers are
[page 2] likely to clip.
A letter will reach me at New Castle on Friday. Will be home Monday.
(in haste) Eugene
