Scope and Content

From Dr Thomas Griffin Tarpley on Jersey in the Channel Islands, to Chesterfield Street, London, expressing his fervent love and gratitude for Sally's friendship.

Her last letter was received on July 5th, just after the packet sailed. He was sorry to read that she has been feeling unwell.

Bristol is a delightful place, and he was charmed to read of her 'little youthful vagaries'.

As Captain Haynes is a friend of Sally's, Tarpley will be delighted to see him.

Captain Reid(?) is here, and reference is made to his music. Sally and his brothers have however 'spoiled me for all other music'.
