My dear Tom

 

            Your intelligence is most surprising. Can it be possible that in all the East, there is no man to be relied on; but that they must bring a man from England?

 

            But you are quite right to go. I would not be the one to bid my Son turn  his back on his duty; and I am proud that I am the Mother of such a Son.; and no doubt Minnie [1] is proud of her Husband, and so she ought to be.

 

            May God bless you and keep you wherever you go; and bring you back in peace and safety as He always did.

 

            I believe old Rose’s [2] blessing follows you, and always will;  and many blessings besides.

 

            No more at present as I hope soon to see you, and I am in hurry going to see the potatoes planted.

 

            Love to all, from your most affectionate Mother,

 



[1] Amelia Lydia DARE – wife of Sir Thomas JACKSON

[2] Rose who?
