Its impossible to paint the anguish of my heart on this melancholy occasion. A most unfortunate Hooping cough has deprived you, and us of two sweet Lucys, within a week. Ours was the first that fell a sacrifice. She was thrown into violent convulsions linger’d out a week and then expired. Your dear angel was confined a week to her bed, her sufferings were great though nothing like a fit. She...
I perceive indeed that our friends are kinder than we have sometimes supposed them, and that their letters do not come to hand. I am happy that yours of July 30 . has not shared the common fate. I received it about a week ago, together with one from Mr. Eppes announcing to me that my dear Polly will come to us the ensuing summer. Tho’ I am distressed when I think of this voiage, yet I know it...
I received your favor of Apr. 6. by Jack, and my letter of this date to Mr. Eppes will inform you that he is well under way. If we can keep him out of love, he will be able to go strait forward, and to make good way. I receive with real pleasure your congratulations on my advancement to the venerable corps of grandfathers, and can assure you with truth that I expect from it more felicity than...
This will, I hope, be handed you by my dear Polly, who I most ardently wish may reach you in the health she is in at present. I shall be truly wretched till I hear of her being safely landed with you. The children will spend a day or two on board the ship with her, which I hope will reconcile her to it. For God’s sake give us the earliest intelligence of her arrival. MS not found; text is...
With pleasure would we embrace your kind invitation to Monticellow if it was possible, but Mr. Eppes will at that time be so engag’d in manufacturing, it will be impossible to leave home tho’ flatter our selves we shall be favour’d with your company at Eppington. Your compliment with regard to dear Polly, I assure you would be no small inducement (tho’ I am assured your own judgment is quite...
I have recieved your favor of May 23. and with great pleasure, as I do every thing which comes from you. I have had a long attack of my periodical head-ach, which was severe also for a few days, and since that has been very moderate. Still however it hangs upon me a little, tho for about 10. days past I have been able to resume business. I am sensible of your goodness and attention to my dear...
I sincerely congratulate you on the birth of your fine Granddaughter. I am told she is a nun such. I wish’d much to have been with my dear Patsy, but it was impossible. I now please myself with the happiness of seeing them all soon. The number of advantages you would have for my dear Polly in Philadelphia I have no doubtmust be very great, added to the happiness of your having her with you,...
Most greatful my dear Sir is your truly affectionate letter to my wounded soul which has been more dead than a live since the fatal day my be-lov’d husband set out for the Springs— We shall be extremely happy to be favor’d with a visit from you & sincerely hope your dear family will accompany you for be assur’d we have the highest affection for every individual— I have promis’d to accompany my...
The Mr. Fitzhughs having staid here longer than they expected, I have (since writing my letter of Aug. 30. to Mr. Eppes) received one from Dr. Currie of Aug. 5. by which I have the happiness to learn you are all well and my Poll also. Every information of this kind is like gaining another step, and seems to say ‘We have got so far safe.’ Would to god the great step was taken and taken safely;...
