My dear Mrs. McQuesten
We feel very much obliged to you, for your affectionate enquiries after our [?] Father, together with your kind solicitations for ourselves [???] that you truly sympathise with us, in our affliction.
[?] my good lady Kind Providence carries us through [??], no earthly friend could vouch for. Our dying hopes of his recovery are somewhat revived to day. We trust [the?] God pity will smile upon him & grant him a speedy recovery, that the rest of his days may be spent in a fully righteous sober life to the glory of his holy name.
PS Forgive me my [?] not answering your polite note by your sister this morning. Nothing but additional sickness would have prevented me. Brother Richard has had a very sick [?] day. Sisters unite in sending their love to [?] and Mrs. McQuesten. God bless you and return your husband in health and [???].
Yours MLM Hartwick
