Dear Father Mother Brothers & sisters
I now enform [inform?] you that through the mercys [mercies?]
of God we are all in good health & hope that
this shall find you in the same.
I have the pleasure of seeing my Brother
Robert evry [every?] week he is in good health
at present I sent two letters to Pitsburgh [Pittsburgh?]
to Brother William but received
no answer on the 22nd Ult I seen
William Dill he enformed [informed?] me of his
going to Ireland by way of new york
and I sent word by him to brother
John to come for his [w?]atch
We had a very severe Winter here this
season those who have been living
here for some years backs has
never before witnessed such
[?] on average there has no less than
170 died each week within the
City our Markets here this season has
been very A[?] when compared with
this we have the hapiniss [hapiness?] of seeing Mrs Ross
repeated by also Wm [William?] & family he is well & doing
well I would be glad that you would
favour me with a letter as soon as possible
to inform me how my father mother & all the
family enjoyed their health since I left them
I desire that you would remember me to
Uncles & aunts with other enquiring friends
To [too?] I remain your affectionate daughter until
death Anne Forest.
I wish to let Geo. [George?] Steward know with regard to
the business in hand concerning the money that
he expected coming to him with David Hazlet
you can let him know that the agent he employed
was here the 1st of Novr [November?] & notised [noticed?] Mrs
Hazlet to pay up as law directed but
would not acknowledge to pay any thing
she has taking out a defence against the
agent. She expects that no person here can
prove that your Wife With her two sisters
Mrs King & Mrs Simpson are the lawful sisters
of David Hazlet, the plan that I would think
most advisable would be for some person
to make their affidavit there before a magistrate
and send it over to Captain Graham or any other person
that you think proper
