In this letter written to Mary Johnson, Thomas S. Fuller of Milan, Ohio sends his regrets on the passing of her brother William. It is not clear whether Thomas was a friend, an authority figure at the school William was attending, or simply an acquaintance. He references a letter that he wrote to Mary in January where he may have written something disconcerting about William that would have upset his family and friends and asks for her forgiveness for any ill feelings he may have caused. He closes the letter with some lines about what a fine man William was.
Mary was daughter of one of Worthington's founders, Orange Johnson and wife Achsa (Maynard) Johnson. She married Francis Sessions on August 18, 1847. The Sessions were interested in promoting art and art instruction in Columbus. The Sessions art collection formed a basis for the Columbus Museum of Art collection.
William M. Johnson was Mary's brother. He was born in 1818 and died in 1840.
