Photocopy of letter. Written from [Wooler, Northumberland]
She is sending them an interesting letter from a Japanese gentleman; not to mention anything about him yet, but she hopes when he gets back to his country he will send them some news of his work. She asks for a letter to be forwarded to Mr Cooke for his gift which has relieved her anxiety about extra comfort against the cold, which is extreme up there, 'no walls keep it out in this fierce northeast wind'. She encloses letter from Mr Pierson [of Holland]; she wrote him because 'I wish to have every shadow of displeasure or grudge against any man taken out of my heart'. She feels for the thousands of 'out of work people who have not fires nor sufficient clothing'.
