Scope and Content

From Anne Tripp in [Leeds] to Mary Tooth in Madeley. She is writing to thank Tooth for the book, which she has received safely and is sure will be much benefitted by the contents [reference to "The Life of Mary Fletcher" by Henry Moore]. Even though Mary Fletcher is dead, she shall speak.Tripp is pleased that Tooth's labours have not been in vain and that the work is to her satisfaction.

In a postscript, Tripp mentions that her sight is now so bad that she can scarcely write a line.
