we may have Grace to be resigned to his will in every thing
I hope it will Please God to give to you and your Wife your
Health to see your Children able to provide for themselves
I had given up expecting an increase in your Family but hope
it will be for good we have lost Mrs? Timson and Mrs?
Dumblerton since I wrote last and Mrs Moor is come to
Newton Parish she is quite redused and is lost the use of
one arm or nearly so so she fell down and broke it and as nobody
[ ]Properly atended to her daughter is with her but I

give up to such anxiety about them or else I shall not
