My dear Edward,
 
My dear Edward,
Our dear Mary has been sinking rapidly since Thursday night; and will not probably live out this day. By a paper you sent us, we find you left for Amoskeag on Thursday. As we do not know how long you expected to be absent, when you left, we can only ask Mr. Chase to forward information of this trying fact to your direction immediately. "The Lord reigneth, let the earth rejoice." I know it is unnecessary to ask you to endeavour to be with us, as soon as convenient. The dear one has distinctly contemplated death, without fear; and as yet she suffers no pain. Caroline Judkins, you probably know, is happy; and Cousin Sarah is apparently near her end. Our Father's will be done! The rest are well, and we all seem to be wonderfully supported.

Saturday Morning - 9 o'clock

My dear Edward, Our dear Mary has been sinking rapidly since Thursday night; and will not probably live out this day. By a paper you sent us, we find you left for Amoskeag on Thursday. As we do not know how long you expected to be absent, when you left, we can only ask Mr. Chase to forward information of this trying fact to your direction immediately. "The Lord reigneth, let the earth rejoice." I know it is unnecessary to ask you to endeavour to be with us, as soon as convenient. The dear one has distinctly contemplated death, without fear; and as yet she suffers us pain. Caroline Judkins, you probably know, is happy; and Cousin Sarah is apparently near her end. Our Father's will be done! The rest are well, and we all seem to be wonderfully supported.

Truly your brother
