Scope and Content

From Birmingham. Tooth’s kind invitation was delivered by her friend – he dined with them and seems a a very nice man. As he was going on to Meriden[?] he did not stay. Jordan would be grateful if Tooth could send the other ‘half’ to Mrs M, as she does not know their address.

She has had many trials and afflictions since they last met, more than she can put in a letter. She is unable to leave home at present because of her health, ‘but I have the promist land in view’.

Jordan was sorry to hear that Tooth’s health is very poor.

Her husband has done all he can to make ‘me give up my confidence [in God?] but I would rather dey [die] a marter [martyr]’. If she is spared until they see one another, she will tell Tooth all about it.
