My dear Frederic, will not wonder if his mother, who loves him not less certainly than the best of his friends, should wish to put in a word. It is amusing to see how your father, as to letter sending is following after you and Hannah. I rejoice at it for I know it must be gratifying to you, and the rest of us catch glimpses of you while reading your answers. Don’t think me crazy about socks, if I send you a pair well mended- and ask you to send back by Theodore all you have and can spare that need mending or would do to have new feet knit upon them as there is honorable mention made in an ancient Record, of thou who had “washed the saint’s feet.” What if I should aspire to be ranked among them?

Do you wish to sell your old sun hat, and what will you take for it? If the silk dress is done and Theodore cannot conveniently pay for it- please pay for it yourself & you shall receive the money again surely if not speedily. The advocate of peace I ought to pay for; the offer is made of 5 copies for 2 dollars. I should like to transfer Mr. Bcman’s copy to Rufus Ellis. I hope you get the time to read mine before it is sent on. I wish I had something to send you in return for your kindness in sending this miscellany and many other publications- as it is I must content myself with supplication to the father of mercies that he will give you unceasing ability and zeal to do his work, and to bear witness always by word and deed that the spirit of Jesus is in you of a truth. In their solemn exercises be assured our dear Hannah is not forgotten; neither will you I trust forget or omit to pray for your most affectionate mother.

Elizabeth
