Collection: Serjeant Family Letters, 1769-1840

 

Item: Letter to Elizabeth Browne Rogers Roche from Winwood Serjeant (4 January 1773)

 

Transcription:

 

it pretty well: it is more convenient

& much warmer than the other

house: We do not yet make use of the

new apartments, the plaster is not

thoroughly dry. I was greatly sur-

prised to see Mr Badger Christmes

morning: He told me that he was

under an absolute necessity of being

at Boston at that time, attending

some Law suit respecting his Wife’s

fortune; of which he assured me

he had wrote Mr Trayle word that

it was not in his power to be at Port-

smouth Christmas Day. Poor little

Poll & Duke too, have both got sad

colds, but I hope they will soon wear

off.
