well do otherwise. She always enquires very particularly after you evry mail.

Give my love dearest Julia to your Pa & Ma and all the rest of the family. Tell Fred. to be a good boy and recollect his pa and mind evry thing his grand pa & ma tells him. Kiss him and Ulys for me and write a great deel about them. I will close here for the present hoping that before the Mail closes we will get the mail which has just come up and then I can let you know if I get anything.

Adieu dear wife

P. S. There is not a particle of hope of geting the Mail that come up in time to add anything to this If the Mail should come in time to give me five minuets I will write you another letter if it is only to tell you whether or not I have heard from you. Do not fret dear Julia about me. I am perfectly well and have entirely recovered from those attacks of cramp which I had a few weeks since. They amounted to nothing except they were painful. Adieu again dear dear Julia.

Your affectionate husband
