From G. Whitmore at Cotsbrook to Mary Tooth in Madeley. They are very concerned by Tooth's account of Mary Fletcher's health and can only pray that the Lord may spare her for a little while longer.
They expect [John] Eyton to call here on his way to Madeley.
Whitmore's aunt's arm is improving. Mr Bayley says that her progress exceeds what can be expected in such cases, although she remains in severe pain.
They have been much occupied with some distressing family news. They have been unexpectdly 'deprived of two relations, both young people, which prevents our coming to Madeley this evening ...' Spiritual matters are discussed in detail.
They were sorry to hear about Tooth's injured thumb.
Some of the servants will be at Madeley this evening and Whitmore would be grateful if Tooth could pass them word of how Fletcher has passed the day
