I thank you a thousand times my dearest husband for your frequent letters. Though I shall be overjoyed to see you again in health and safety yet I would rather you should stay a night in London. Bury is a great distance from Town & you are so little accustomed to stage coach travelling that I really do not wish to see you till Friday.

My dearest Love,

I have just had the happiness of receiving your letter. It is a great comfort to me to know that you have performed your journey northwards safely. I trust the same gracious God who has thus far protected you will bring you back to your home in peace. I hope dear Bess is better.

My dearest dearest Richard,

Your letter I need not say made me happier than any thing in the world could do in your absence - Our home looked so desolate when you had left it that I was quite glad to get away.

Dearest Love,

Dear Richard,

My father has certainly the happiest art of getting himself out of a difficulty, as well as of helping other people out of theirs. Perhaps I ought rather to have written to him to express my gratitude for his kindness to me & my flock.

My dear Rich’d

We had the pure pleasure of receiving your letter date 26th June Lausanne yesterday- I do not reply this early to hasten your return to England as it is the wish of your Father and myself that you should feel yourself at perfect liberty to remain abroad as long as you think it will improve your health-

My dear Lottie,

My promise must be fulfilled but where the theme is to come from I know not, the subject uppermost in my mind must be withheld, lest it should wound the feelings of those I dearly love- but I may multiply good wishes, that the advantage gained by the proposed excursion may far outweigh the inconveniences attending it and...

My dear Richd, Fosbury May 9th

I must provoke you to give me a letter be it ever so concise, for I am looking out sharp at breakfast hour, and your father would murmur if I did not sound in his ear that no news was good news -
