Philadelphia Oct 17th 1837
Dear mother if yet alive & brother I take
this favourable opportunity of writing
a few lines to inform you that we are both
well & hope that these few lines may find
you the same I have received no letter
from you since the time you sent me
word about my fathers death I think
you have been very neglectful I wrote
to you since but have received no
answer Mrs Ross got a letter which
informed about Mothers illness
I want you to send me an answer
as soon as possible I hear all accounts
about you by the passengers and I am
glad to hear of your welfare the
latest news I got was by Mr Robert
Smith I went three miles to see him
let Mrs Edward knw that her two
daughters are both well the eldest is
married Miss Edwards come from New
york in the month of june & let me
know that brother John & William
are both well William has not been
to see me these two years I have sent
often for John & him I do expect them
when the work is over they will come
and see me Mrs Ross has broken up
housekeeping and gone to live with
her son and he has removed to the
country she was in a few days with
me and they were all well the
summer was very good but it is
hard to get money when it is
earned I hear that brother David
is gone in to Newton to live
he often talked of coming here but I
would not advise him to come to
this country remember me to all
my friends uncle and to aunts
and to all enquiring friends
Margaret Ann Carr is married
and has a little daughter all is well
when you write direct your
letter to Richard pollock south

affectionate sister
