My dear Sir

Having heard thro’ my Neighbour Mrs. Baker[1] that your dear and amiable Lady has happily passed thro’ her expected trial, I cannot refuse myself the gratification of offering you my very cordial congratulations on an event so essential to your comfort and happiness. I pray that it may please our heavenly Father to bless the life preserved, and the life given. I beg the favour of your presenting my most affectionate regards to Mrs. Pigott; in which Miss Frowd desires to join. I also desire my particular love to my dear little friend.

I remain dear Sir
Your obliged and
faithful Servant
H. More
