My dear Friend

We have all been in great distress lately what pleased God to remove from among us my dear Sister Kennethina.  Her illness tho of a nature to make it very uneasy for seven weeks past did not excite any immediate alarm

Sir William Macarthur

[Crosshatched writing]

& short to believe that we shall all meet again ever in this world, but it is hard to be left by friends among our acquaintance, but I ought not to speak in this way for really I have been singularly fortunate in the matter of friends, here as well as in the Colony, but then there are no friends like old friends.

In the case of Plants that go out on the Duncan Dunbar for my Brother there are some vines & figs among the latter the "Wild Fig" for you.
