Uriah says he has a secret hope their will be enough to pay all debts. he will not undertake the business unless he can beneft My dear suffering Mother. she is not so well for a week past. indeed my dear Uncle Last Sunday night I did not think she would live till morning. the pain was so severe Sister Susan nor I. never closed our eyes till. 4 oclock. neither did Mother. it was the most trying I ever past. she has taken a heavy cold she is still anxious to go to the sea shore. the last of this Month we think of going.
The Doctor says it is the last resource. her Friends all approve of it. we have heard of many wonderfull cures that have been made by going. Aunt Lydia missed her chill yesterday. she is rather better to-day. the rest of our Friend's are as well as usual. Mother desires her love to all affectionately. I have not time to say any more at this time. we hope to see you before a great while. excuse a short letter.
