Dear Sir


I have still the same opinion I had
of the nature of your ailment, but I
think you are likely to get quit of it
very easily. Some remain of uneasiness
and Swelling was to be expected.


Your Agrimony tea I take to be
very safe and may be continued


While it is proper to continue your
Vegetable food, either Oat meal porridge
or Rice may safely make a part of it


Your strength will be mended
when you are at liberty to take more
exercise, and which I think you may
attempt on a Carriage, as soon as this
wet season is over.


I am clear that after this month
your Sister may give up here
