I cannot express my delight when seeing yours and dear Thomases likeness, they were so Good. Do tell me when the were taken and where. I can carsely believe after seven or 9 long years I was to see you once more. I hope for my sake I shall see the reality some day. 
My dear Brother I fancy I see Him alive, I cannot believe he is gone, but I hope to meet him on a better Shore than even these Golden Shores. 
Tell dear Susan I was delighted with her Collar. I have never seen one like it. I shall be so carefull of wearing it lest I should wear it out soon which would grieve me very much. Also dear Edwards present, I have put it away for a particular ocation which I will tell him of some day. I intend writing to each one thanking them myself, but please tell them I prize them more coming from them than if I paid 30 / - for them here. 
I hope by this time dear Edward has read my note. I intend writing often if it is but a few lines, and I hope you will do the same, for it is cheering to think I have one Sister in the world, thou
