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

 

Transcription:

 

Dear Sister

 

I left your House in a

distressful situation & indeed felt much

for you all. I hope poor father is

relieved in health & spirits: If the

Doctors are to be relied on, his back

I should hope must near be healed

up & that he has been able to get

down stairs by this time. As to Dear

Mother no great alteration can be

expected in her favour: Heaven bless

her with peace & comfort so long as

she is preserved to us. We are got

into our new house: moved the day

after I arrived at home & seem to like

it
