Mary [Trout ?]
March 28 /67Very Dear friend John You are too kind to put yourself to so much pain and suffering to write to such a negligent friend (I hardly deserve the name friend) as Mary I do deeply feel for your great trial. O that we were only where we could do the least thing to aleviate your extreme suffering either by helping to brighten those dark tedious days, or to administer to your wants in any other way. If Hattie was where she could read for you, While I dressed you poor eye and gave you the medicine how glad we would be. I do sincerely hope ere this reaches you that the greater part of your pain will be gone, and that your eye will not be nearly as bad as you think. We wont ask you to write anymore just to let us know how you are until your eye is
