I had a letter yesterday not from thee, dearest, but our Sister, with welcome contents – but I cannot write till I am inspired by a line from you…
Remember your promise to tell me faithfully all your feelings & reflections concerning us.
Mine are at this moment – not quite such as I wish to communicate.
I am not very well, but shall be before you receive this – therefore don’t think of it.
