|London Janry. 6th 1797|
I have just learnt that Papa had acquainted you with my
indisposition. I was very ill but am now much recovered as a proof of which, I was able
to partake of a very agreeable dance given by Mr: Murdoch.
You know my beloved friend, how soon my dear Father is alarmed, therefore hope in a
degree; you will attribute
ithis fears to a too tender anxiety for his
Children— — —
I am daily recovering my health and spirits, and hope in time to be able entirely to conquer unavailing grief— — —
We have lately heard from Boston, and I understand that Mr.Hubbard is Married to a Miss Paterson, and that Miss Mary Foster will shortly be united to Mr. Abthorpe— —
I am so fatigued I cannot write to day but will make my next longer— — I should be obliged to you to send me three or four Etweecases for my little Sisters, by the first person who may come— —
While writing this I have recieved yours of the 13th affords me great pleasure, time will not at present allow me fully to acknowledge it—must therefore yield to its all powerful sway— —
Adieu remember me affectionately and believe your most faithful and tender friend
L. C. J.
