making a faded handwritten letter legible

I have 2400 dpi images that were scanned of a 19th-century handwritten letter and they are very faded. I am wondering what to adjust in GIMP to try and make them more legible. Any help is appreciated.

Is the sample the same format as the original scanned image? The sample is an indexed 1 bit (black and white) tif. Nothing there except those pixels. In Gimp use Windows -> Dockable Dialogues -> Colormap See attached clip.

Nothing you can do with that (except guess).
