Lucy Eppes Thweatt to Martha B. Eppes

Changed indeed my dear Sister is our habitation by the absence of you all, I fear Matilda will not remain content she has been so gloomy that I have felt quite uneasy about her. Mr Thweatt has been constantly absent & only her & my self, she appears lost—we have a continuance of Perkins’s visits I leave her to write an account of all his nonsence.—

I rejoiced to hear of your safe arrival for a rumour had reached us of your being detained a day from the Carriage Breaking down. the boat-men made their appearance the day after you started I lamented you had not left some of your baggage.—

My thoughts have been much employed about Sally she was to have written me a substantial cause for her necessary departure. I depend on your communicating to me what she is about as soon as you know her plans.—You will recieve her Dr means with your madder Indigo &c &c also 3$ & 9d change roled in the paper—I wish joe may reach home in safty but I really doubt it if I had a spare one I would send with him as I think it is unsafe his traveling alone—

present me affectionately to my Brother & Sisters do not let dear Mary forget at least my name & for yourself my dear Sister accept my sincere affections


burn this.
