Amesbury Fifth Day Mo 9
My Dear frd. Lucy,
I am glad thee think of going to the
Shoals again. I wish I could go with thee
but I have some things to attend to.
I may however, run down via
Portsmouth before you leave.
I am sorry to trouble thee with so
large a carpet bag but I could not
find any thing else to make use of.
If thee do not go thyself, can thee get
some one of the party to take it
to Appledore House?-
With Kindest regards for
Mr. Spaulding. I am as Ever thy fd.
