Sir/


I give you the trouble of this letter, on account of my
having frequent returns of the Rheumatism this
summer, I have had one very violent attack in my
head
, and can seldom say I am perfectly free of it in
my right arm; I should think my self much indebted
to you, if you could recommend any thing which
might preserve me from suffering so severely in the
ensuing winter, as I can not help dreading that the
cold weather may be apt to encrease the pain which
I now have. -- I am happy to say that the strengthen¬
ing medicines
which you sent me early in summer
were of the greatest use to me, as I now feel myself
as strong as usual. I am Sir your obliged

humble servant
Charlotte Hay

Etall House
September 18th.

My Mother desires me to tell you that my sister
Augusta continues perfectly well, and has neither
cough nor pain in her side --
