Scope and Content

From Sarah Gwynne [in Ludlow?, Shropshire] to Sarah Wesley [in Bristol]. It is pleasing that Sarah has recovered so well after giving birth [to Susanna], that she is able to write, and that Sarah's youngest child has now been put out to nurse.

Neither of Sarah Wesley's parents are feeling in the best of health, but she trusts that [Charles] Wesley is now better.

She supposes that her other daughters will arrive in Bristol tonight with her grandson Tommy Waller.

She has received a letter of the 9th instant from her son Roderick. His regiment has not yet 'taken the field', although orders to do so are imminent. Two junior ensigns have been promoted over his head to lieutenant.

[Elizabeth] Waller should be informed upon arrival in Bristol, that her daughter [Rebecca] is doing very well, and that her eye is much better.

Although Sarah [Gwynne] has been here for three weeks, she has been unable to see her sister Mrs Price as 'neither she nor I can move without a carriage, and your bro's horses and serv'ts are otherwise imployed'.

Sarah [Wesley's] Aunt Harvey has been at Glanbran almost a fortnight, but is expected back soon. The aunts at Brecon are well.

[Howell] Gwynne is away from home.

Cousin Molly, Lady Rudd, her son, Marmaduke junior, and his girls join in sending their love.
