Farmington 24 Jany ’26
I am glad to hear you are so well. My health is such that I can only say I have denied every body. I could not talk with you two minutes without injury. Moreover I am forbidden to go down a high pair of stairs.
When I can hold a conversation & leave my room, I shall still be proud of the honour you now offer me.
