I am concern’d that I have not for a long time heard any thing of Sister Douse.9 Pray inform me how she is. Brothers John, Peter and my self, agreed to contribute towards a small Pension for her Support; I should be glad to know whether it is regularly paid.
Inclos’d is a Receipt for 30 Reams of Paper. I wrote to you per Morton and refer to that.1
My Love to your good Wife and Children, I am Your affectionate Unkle
