Brother John I received your letter on fast-day as we were coming home from meeting in which I found some very fine calculations but this is only a note I also found "something" yet nothing I told you in my last letter it was All done, I meant that which was in the bottle I therefore as you gave me liberty send for some more you said I must cheer up well I have a good while
ago and much reason I have after you left I did not have one single [one?] while the bottle lasted nor for some time after but altogether not more than 3 or 4 and as I had no appetite in the morning now I can eat from 7 to 10 [Not?] Potatoes by day break and begin to feel well therefore I say Cheer up
