Written from Galewood, Nr. Wooler, Northumberland
She has lately been 'much moved by the accounts of the terrible poverty in London, as well as on other large cities'. She would like to write an appeal to Christian hearts to be published in some paper, but is held back by the difficulties for her of dealing with correspondence; she can only write when lying down. She has however an impulse to 'write my heart out to you a little, kind friends, and to ask you if you will perhaps pass on some of my thoughts to other members of your Society [the Friends] more or less privately'. She will write gradually what they can pass on, and send on the rest the next day.
