Montpellier Feb: 16. 1835.
As the most secure mode of paying the inclosed account I trouble you with a request that you will apply five dollars for the purpose, and return the account with the receipt.
A letter of late date from your brother Isaac mentioned that all friends at and about Enniscorthy were in good health. We hope neither yours, or that of Mrs. Coles has suffered from this irregular and hard Winter. Mine has borne it as well as could be expected. Mrs M. has found it more disagreeable than injurious. We unite in every good wish for you both.
