cold wintry day snowing and blowing a perfect gale while I writeI am much pleased to know that David is getting along so nicely with his work and hope he will soon overcome all his great difficultiesThe Book you sent me has been a scourse of very great pleasureto us all in the houseA kind Providence watched over you and brought you through those very dangerous places that you took pleasure in exploring and brought you home in safety to your anxious familyI close with kindest regards to you and every member of your familyFrom your affectionateMother
