My dear Boys
In compliance
with your wish, that I should
soon write to you, I now
sit down to do so, altho [although?] I
have not anything to say farther
than that we got safe home
and found [Jack?] [continued?]
better, altho [although?] he is still
very poorly, Dr Patrick
saw him yesterday he thinks
tis [it is?] some kind of [low?] fever
he has, but does not by any
means consider him in a
dangerous way, so that I hope
he may soon get better -
I hope you got early off
yesterday morning and that
Mr Carley was not displeased
at your remaining so long,
did you tell Mr C. [Carley?] your
Fathers wish and mine, that
you should commence learning
to play the flute, if there
is any one there can teach
you - now we have got fine
weather again you will I suppose
walk out a good deal, but I request
my dear boys that when
very long walks are proposed
you may ask permission to
[amuse?] yourselves at home
tell Mr Carley tis [it is?] my wish,
and I am sure you will be
allowed - God bless you may
health and happiness
ever be with you, is the
prayer of your truly
affectionate mother

[Mrs?] Duffin
write to me very [soon?]
