to His Parents While
Governor of West Virginia
The State of West Virginia
Wheeling, Feb 27th, 1869
My very Dear Father and Mother,
I thought I would drop you a line and let you know that I have not forgotten you, and more especially since by the fource of circumstances which has placed me in the position which I now ocupy. I must confess that I owe my success in life, to the goodness of God, and the early training that I received from faithfull and ever to be honored parents. I have never yet forgotten, the last good and faithfull lesson which you gave me, when I first left your home. Nor have I forgotten the promises that I then made to keep and obey that council. I say this, because I feel that it is but a poor tribute to that respect which is due you. I send you a paper that will give you the strange news of the location of the Capitol at Charleston. I should be pleased to heare from you. My love to all. Your unworthy Son.
D.D.T. Farnsworth Governor.
