My dear Sir,
I can only return you my Sincere thanks for the Strawberries, milk bread & butter you have so Kindly sent us. They were all very nice & much enjoyed by Mrs. Lee.
For your prayers & friendship I am truly grateful & I am joined by Mrs. Lee in Cordial regards to Mrs. Anderson & your daughter for their Kindness.
I am glad to inform you that my son Robert has got in Safely.
Wishing you every happiness,
I am very truly yours,
