Scope and Content

From Katherine Whitmore in Cotsbrook to Mary Tooth in Madeley. Tooth's kind note made Whitmore ashamed that she had sent over the copy of the Jewish Register without taking the opportunity to write to Tooth. However, she trusts that Mrs Hodge would have told Tooth how delighted she was that [Mary] Fletcher's state of health has improved. 'I cannot but hope she may yet again come out among her people.'

They all arived home safely on Monday night, having been delighted by [John] Eyton's sermon. Mr Woodcrosse[?] gave them a 'sweet little discourse' yesterday evening. There was a reasonable attendance, but very few from Beckbury. Most people came in from a distance. Whitmore is afraid that none of them can attend to hear Mr Mortimer on Monday. They are expecting Miss Bird to arrive from Worcester, if she is not too fatigued. Whitmore hopes that they may be able to hear Mr Radford speak, if he comes to Betty Ward's, but 'dear Madeley' is out of the question.

Whitmore hopes that Tooth thinks that she was reasonably accurate in her 'little outline of Solomon Joseph's history, but I was surprised to find I had added some of my own feelings and sentiments.'

They have had a 'comfortable letter from our beloved Dora'
