Troy, June 23rd, 1832.
Dear Mother Perhaps before this reaches you some one may have started to come after me, but as I wish to let you know that I am in comfortable health for which I desire to be grateful and [who] to urge you to send some one after me I have resolved to write you at this time. Many of the girls are leaving school, and if somebody should not come after me, I know not what I should do. I shall look for a letter from home to day, or for a loving epistle. Yesterday was observed as a day of fasting & prayer, on account of this dreaded disease. Mrs. Willard says she is willing to have the girls go home if their friends come after them and will [rip in page] friends refuse to come for me? I know that we cannot [rip in page] escape evils by fleeing from them, but then I think and almost all the other girls think, that it is best at such times for children to be with their parents. Mrs. Willard wishes the parents of the young ladies to know exactly how the case stands, and then have them act their own judgment about sending for them. She is perfectly willing that the girls should go home if their friends send for them. Do pray much for me that my life & health and happiness may be precious in the sight of God, and that my soul may have in Christ a sure & unfading friend. I enclose the bulletin and wish you my dear friends would use every means of preserving your health. Come after me if possible. From your affectionate daughter
Mary D. Huntington
