Mr. Thompson
I am told that I have the preference of administering on my deceased husbands Estate which the distance to Kaskaskia and my age will not admit of my doing so, I therefore send you those lines as proof that I relinquish all my right of administering to my son Samuel W. Higgason, this the 1st day April 1843.
Your friend,
Miss Polly Higgason
