The (following) letter to Nathan Boone Van Bibber is almost illegible, again due to the limitations of copy making at the time I received it.
This is an attempt at deciphering it.

Charlestown W. Va.
I got what I supposed to be your address by reading a piece in the St. Louis Republican, concerning a gun which Daniel Boone gave to Matthias Tice Van Bibber, who I suppose, from statements in said paper, was your grandfather. My father was bor n in Greenbriar County , Now W. Va., in 1797, and was a son of James Van Bibber-
My mother was a daughter of Nathan Boone and Olive Van Bibber Boone, my mother and father being first cousins.
My Grandfather Van Bibber had a brother Tice so I suppose we must be (illegible)
My object in writing is (illegible, "learning"?) something of my ancestors in (rest of sentence illegible, possibly "Moan W. Va.")
I learned that there is a book in the (illegible word) in Va. giving a history of Daniel Boone and Van Bibbers crossing the mountains on their trip moving west-- If there is such a book or any history that will give any account of our ancestors pl ease let me know where I can get one and what it will cost and I will send the necessary amount at once.
Will write more if I hear from you.
