With great concern I bore this disappointment of not coming to you as I promised you, I have pleased myself with coming and would be very happy with you and family but the hooping coughs has put an end to all hopes for some time I have had it so bad that I could not go out of the house this four weeks past, the children are getting well but did not care to carry them so long a jurney and to houses where the coughs had not been and carrying children with so troublesome a disorder is of no pleasure in winter and I considered your dear little girl had not had it, I pray give my love to Mr. Bassett & Betsy and accept the same from dear Nancy, your most

affectionate & loving sister Martha Washington
