My dear Madam

Allow me, with my own hand, to return you my cordial thanks for your repeated kindnesses, which I assure you I feel very sensibly.

I have lost my amiable Secretary[2] for a few weeks. My health is very far from being perfectly restored, nor is it perhaps good for me that it should. I am in the best hands, and desire only an entire submission to his will. I am very much better than there was any prospect I should ever be

I beg leave to present this new and improved Edition of the Bible Rhymes[3] to your dear little girl . In great haste I am my dear Madam

Your truly obliged
H More
