In your Letter to Mamma my Dear Eliza of —— May you are strangely puzled to know in what manner to address your Cousin.

But at this period, a Letter addressd to your friend under the title of M...
Yesterday my Dear Lucy I received your kind favour of the 9th of April, and it was the only Letter for me, in Pappas packett. However I hope there are others on Board.
