My Dear Sir,
The pleasing account conveyed to me this
morning by your letter of yesterdays date, with
respect to Mrs. Allens comfortable passage and
increasing convalescence, greatly relieved my anxiety
on her account and afforded me, I assure you, my
sincere gratification indeed - When I look back on
the sickness she endured and the dangers she escaped,
I cannot but think how grateful we should all be to
the Almighty for blessing, as He did, the means
employed for her relief, and I sincerely hope that
neither her patience nor strength may ever again be
tested by such a severe and alarming illness, as it
pleased Him to afflict her with so lately-
The remittance you enclosed, and which I now
gratefully acknowledge, was quite too liberal
- I can only hope that your means may ever be more
than commensurate with your generosity [--use?]
returned the activities you allude to - Accept my
sincere wishes for Mrs. Allens speedy recovery
[----------t?] health & happiness, and with kind
regards to the [-actor?], and stile [still?] kinder
to Mrs Marshall, believe me my Dear Sir
Your Obliged & gratiful [grateful?]
My unwelcome visitor has
at length taken his departure I feel
I shall not quite forget him for a time
