I only went to America to make a call & tell you all we had safely arrived, & was to return immediately.
You will give very much love to all for me. They must all write me, & their letters shall be answered as speedily as possible.
We leave here the last of this week.
I shall leave letters to be sent by the first opportunity.
George & Ann must not forget us.
Your ever affectionate Mary.

I do not know as I shall be able to speak to you when I return, I see so many lords and ladies!
