My dearest Husband,

We had a very long time to wait at Mr Adams’ yesterday, about two hours altogether, & he was in a dreadful bustle when we did see him, but I think his opinion was tolerably satisfactory, he did not quite like May’s shoulder, but when I asked him downright whether she was better or worse, he said it was a little better, but not quite as much so as he had hoped, the little place on the spine he called decidedly better.  He was very pleased with her stays, but showed me a different way of putting them on, & he wants us to send the trapeze to Crust’s to be made into a double bar, so that she may exercise the left shoulder more than the right.

Polly was over here yesterday, & I am going to the Colonial with her today, Fanny is going to drive me over to Richmond & we are starting soon, so I must not write more.  

I hope all at home are well, my love & kisses to all the little ones.  I hope I shall hear from you some time today.

Fanny sends her love & is so pleased I can stop a week, they all think me looking so well.

Fond love my darling from

Your affect.ate wife

Eugénie N Sladden
