F. Huebler regrets not greeting his brother in person, and reports that he is ill. He has accepted a position and relies on God for his fate. He requests that his brother help Heinrich with a task. He mentions a new preacher, Brother Finger, in Madison, and regrets that he himself cannot work to his full ability. He mentions the Swiss chancellor travelling to Ashford. In a postscript, he requests that the $200 he presumably sent be give to Heinrich.
