C. B. King
Oregon Tenn. April 19th 1850 Mr. C. B. King
Dear Sir - having been appointed guardian for the heirs of Wm. King late of this county and being informed that they have some funds in you hands, I embrace this method of saying to you that as guardian it becomes necessary for me to attend to that matter. I hope you are prepared to pay over the same at any time be that as it may. I wish to hear from you forthwith upon that subject.

Your friends here are well.

Wiley M. Newman

P.S. Fail not to write as my duty as guardian requires me to attend to this affair soon.
