Dear Sir:

It is a long time since we heard from you and I assure you the whole family are exceedingly anxious to be informed of the welfare of you and yours. I am sorry to inform you that Mrs. Jones is in a very low State and I really almost despair of her ever getting well. I am sure she cannot till she is delivered. and that will not be till Jany. She wants much to see you and Polly, And hopes you will come as soon as convenience & the weather permits. I assure you I am in a distrest situation, but hope Mrs. Jones will yet do well. Mrs. Jones presents her love to you & Polly. Give my love to her

Dr. Sir Yours,
