My Dear Children
<p-bgn>I have been so much
engaged the last two letter days,
that I could not take time to write,
so deputised Emma, to do so in my
stead. but Julianna's Childs Nurse,
arrived a couple of days ago, much to
my releif, and Jule's to, as we' can now
attend to something els occasionally.
I do wish Jennie, could get as competent,
and nice looking a Nurse, as she has.<p-end>
<p-bgn>We have had a very pleasant week
with them. Jule has held daily <unclear>See Vees</unclear>
of both Ladies, and Gents in her room,
and the beauty, and intelligence, of her
Sons, is the town talk, to say nothing
of their good Lungs. tomorrow, they will leave us. we are all, and Aunt Mary's family, to celebrate the New Year, at Aunt Julianna's, and they are to return to Race Street, in the evening.
     I hope you spent a pleas-ant Christmass we wished for you many times, and the little Boys, in particular. I donot think I ever saw so much display before, the stores were dress'ed off most splendidly, and I should have enjoyd taking the little fellows about so much, I often said Oh! that would just suit Chipy, and would not Olly, like to have this? and such a thing, would delight Johny. Whitman, sold out every thing in his store Christmass Eve, and had to shut up 'till the middle of the week, and he told me, he had made twice as much, as he ever did before but he has now a magnifficent supply.

You have not said any thing about Janes New Girls, whether she was to have those the Doctor wrote for, when I was at Hertford. be sure, you let me know when you write, for I feel very anxious to hear about it.
     Father, returned from New Hope, yesterday, and reported all well. Aunts, Ruth, & Jane, expected to have come down, but are at Elias Paxsons helping nurse Cousin Rachel, who is very sick, and very troublesome, will not let any one, come about her, but those she happens to fancy so it makes it pretty hard for them, and Debby to. They have to have the Windows up, and fan her very often, this bitter cold weather.
     Father says, they are filling our Ice House. which I am very glad of, this cold spell, is very favourable, for havig good Ice.
