I have found the posts belonging to the Bed and would have sent them down by the Horse cart, but William is not yet well enough to go. the Snow prevented mr Bates from going, the day he intended and the week is now so far advanced that he has thought best to stay till Monday when he will attend you, and the cart shall then take in the Bed posts & his tools. rs Greenleaf sent me word, that the...
My wife having been at the Ball last Night, was not up this morning, when your letter was brought by Mr: Briesler—In her name and my own therefore I must return you our thanks for your loaf of bread, and fine goose—It gives me great satisfaction to learn you are getting better—Our black man too is recovering, and we have no symptoms yet in any other part of the family—We have letters with...
I am sorry that we are again obliged to postpone our visit to you at Quincy, as George is this day breaking out with the meazles—His symptoms however are favourable, and we hope he will have the disorder lightly—I send out by William the two turkies and a fish. There is no Cod at market, for which reason I send a haddock—You will also receive a Rochefort cheese enclosed in a leaden cover—Of...
