My dear John
I culled a Few Flowers for George from The Andrian. I have done the Same for you here from the Step Mother, and will do the Like Soon for Charles. I Sent Georges by Mr Thatcher.
John! Your Father and your Grandfather can attest upon Oath to a Similar Voyage in 1778.
John! The Case of the Step Mother here is the Case of your Grandfather! Meditate a little upon it.
