Letter from the mother of Maria Deinhard Pfeiffer and Barbara Deinhard Kellermeier to the family of their brother Johann.

NEWMARKT, MARCH 17, 1870,

DEAR JOHANN,

I NOTICED IN YOUR LETTER FROM JANUARY 2, THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED MY LETTER DD DECEMBER 1869 WITH MY PHOTO, AND HAVE SHOWN ME THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED ALL MY LETTERS AND I YOURS.  ONLY THE POWER OF ATTORNEY HAS NOT REACHED ME TO DATE, NEITHER IN THIS COURT NOR IN KASTEL, NOR IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF VELBURG.  IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER IF YOU HAD SENT IT TO ME, THEN I HAD ONLY TO APPLY TO THE SUPERIOR COURT.  THIS DAY IT WAS CALLED BEFORE THE LOCAL COURT WHERE I WAS TOLD THAT THE SUPERIOR COURT HAD RECEIVED INFORMATION THAT THERE WAS DEPOSITED F207 AND SOME KREUZER COMING TO JOHAN DEINHARD FROM HIS MOTHER'S ((IS THIS FATHER'S)) ESTATE, AND THAT THE MOTHER CAN RECEIVE THIS MONEY AS SOON AS SHE CAN DEPOSIT THE COURT THE POWER OF ATTORNEY FROM HER SON JOHANN.  JUDGE MAIER, LOCATED HERE HAS REQUESTED ME TO WRITE TO YOU AT ONCE TO HAVE A POWER OF ATTORNEY MADE OUT AT ONCE AND TO SEND IT TO ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AS THE FIRST DOCUMENT HAS BEEN LOST.  AS LONG AS IT IS NOT SENT WILL THE MONEY NOT BE PAID.  DO NOT SEND IT TO THE COURT BUT DIRECTLY TO ME.  AS SOON AS I RECEIVE THE MONEY SHALL I AFTER SUBTRACTION OF THE COST, BUY A CHECK FROM MR. CARL CONRAD KNOPF, BANKER IN NURNBERG AND SEND TO YOU AT ONCE, AND YOU CAN RECEIVE THE MONEY IN AUSTIN OR ANY OTHER PLACE.  DO NOT POSTPONE SENDING ME THE DOCUMENT.  JOHANN TISOHNER SENT ONCE A POWER OF ATTORNEY FROM BUFFALO TO HIS BROTHER, ANT.TISOHNER SO THAT HE COULD RECEIVE THE INHERITANCE OF HIS BROTHER WHO DIED IN BREITENBRYN.  HE ALSO SENT AN ATTORNEY'S POWER TO HIS BROTHER, WHO COULD RECEIVE THE MONEY THRU A CHECK BOUGHT FROM HERR KNOPF THRU THE INSTRUMENTALITY OF  MR. T. N. NIDERMAYER, MERCHANT AND SENT TO BUFFLO.  IT IS VERY SIMPLE AND DOES NOT TAKE ANY TROUBLE AND THERE IS A SMALL DISCOUNT TO BE PAID.

GEORGE WOLF DIED ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO.  THE COOPERATOR KERSCHENSTEINER DIED IN DECEMBER 1869.

YOUR DAUGHTER IN LAW ((CHECK THIS CAREFULLY; IS MARGARETHA SENILE?  SHE IS OBVIOUSLY REFERRING TO ERHARD'S WIDOW )) HAS MARRIED MICHAEL KERSCHENSTEINER FROM ANZENHOF IN YOUR NATIVE HOME.  (( THIS MARRIAGE OF ERHARD'S WIDOW WITH 2 CHILDREN, WAS REPORTED TO ANTON BY A FRIEND IN 1867.))  THEY HAVE 3 CHILDREN, ALL GIRLS.  THEIR HOTEL CONTINUES TO DO WELL AS IT IS NO MORE CLOSED [ONLY](EXCEPT) ON CHURCH FESTIVALS. 

WITH MANY CORDIAL GREETINGS TO YOUR WIFE AND CHILDREN I REMAIN WITH LOVE AND AFFECTION.

YOUR DEVOTED MOTHER, MARGARETHA DEINHARDT

P.S.  YOUR 207F ARE IN LAABER WITH YOUR BROTHER IN LAW ((THIS REFERS TO THE MAN WHO MARRIED HIS SISTER-IN-LAW))KERSCHENSTEINER SO THAT IT IS NECESSARY TO RECEIVE IT SOON, AS IT DOES NOT BEAR INTEREST
