If we ware too or three hundred miles distant I could expect to hear as often from you as I do...

Our friend Amanda talks of leaveing Ger manto wn her mamma has sent for her, I had not time to ask her why....
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...
