To: Rev. Thomas Baker 3 Bold Street Hamilton Ontario
From: London, England
Dear Mr Baker
Thanks for the papers so kindly sent but we have been hoping for a letter from you as I should have written before. Dear Aunt feels uneasy fearing you or your family might not be well.
The papers speak of
The great heat in [Summer??]and also death from it. We have had it very hot here, indeed most harmful to bear particularily those in weak health, we fear your dear wife has felt it much. Aunt is very well, and happy as she can be on earth, having every comfort and kind attention, indeed Janey say the [lines??] are fallen to her in pleasant places and that at evening time it shall be light. She has not been at all affected by the heat and is certainly getting [startle/thicker??]. Her intellect is pretty clear but she can't [??go into] any thing much and her memory fails her. Still we are much thankfull to have been able to get her such a comfortable home. Will you kindly in future write once a month if posfible [sic] as a few lines will suffice and also the ?? arrived easy. she decries her dear love to you and dear Mrs. Baker also all the family and greatful thanks for your great a and loving kindnefs, [also/Mrs.??] O regards [Blackham??] my sister and self.
P.S. Do not forget to write, we are longing to see it. Leaving
Tuesday July 26 of King Street ?? London 11.6.
