No actual year date on letter.   Also said in letter  "I have not heard from Dick or your mother since you went away" :)

 I have the original letter written to my great grandfather William Henry Miller from Richard Hearn
Hunton Yalding, March 29 Bank Holiday in England.  It looks like someone has written the letter and Richard has signed his name to it.  He talks about his state of health, how cold it has been and a Jack Turley whom has been helping him etc.... he also asks William if he could get and send some flower and opium seeds and send them in a "segar" box packed up with paper!  The letter is signed off "So no more from your Grandfather and Mother.    I am R HEARN  (very shaky writing)
