[I]n compliance with your request I have undertaken to inform you that we are reasonably well at present hoping these few lines may find you and yours injoying the same blessing. I arived safe home in four Days after I left you. I came home well but in a few Dayes after I was taken with a Disentary which Lasted several weaks but I am slowly recovering and feel my self very weak yet. [It reduced me very much I have Not been able to work any of account sence I came home. [A]llso your sister [H]annah has been sick this spring and summer. [S]he was taken with the yellow jandas first as was supposed it then turned to the fevers but she is allso on the mend. [T]he rest of your relations here is well at present.

[Y]ou gave me an order for the taking the Depusition of John [H]oldcraft which I have faild in Holdcrofts Never appearing in this country since I came home as I have heard of yet.

Last Wheat in general Looks tolerable well we expect to commence Reaping on the 13th of this inst which is considerable sooner than you harvest in your country.
