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.
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.
