My dear George
I received your kind note this morning & am pleased you are well, also that Wm. Chandler is at yours. Lets hope you may both be happy and comfortable, for its no use to live without comfort. Now my dear boy I wish you many happy returns of your birthday and hope you may live to enjoy many. I will write again in a few days, I have been very busy and forced to write this at Halesworth but you are not forgotten by us and only wish you & we could meet more often, but must try & do as well as we can.
With very kind love
from your ever loving
I will write & tell you all news in a day or two.
