Included in this PDF is Bean's transcript of the letter. Note that unlike most other transcripts in the Bean Collection, he took the time to bind all typed transcripts of Charles Warner's letters into one separate book kept in box 277.

A modern version of Bean's transcript has been uploaded for the benefit of the researcher.
