My dear Cousin,

Yours just received. I have been thinking of you for days past and knew you were thinking of me. 'Tis sweet to be remembered"Editorial Note: This phrase appeared as the title or part of the lyrics of several songs in the nineteenth century. in this lonely unfriendly world. I was sorry to not meet with you for I should have enjoyed it. Sometime in the future I promise myself my self this pleasure when you have the old folks over again, or the young folks perhaps, I belong to both being a scientist

I was sorry to hear your sister was not well. Dr Spofford is doing cures far more difficult than hers, constantly.

The Mother is the cause When will the world yield to reasoning on health as on morality? Do we not all understand cowardice never conquers? To get rid of a temptation of any sort, or to get out of a difficulty, we are not passive, and let the wrong rule the right! but we struggle, and thus conquer, oftentimes. She should not avoid the things that hurt her, but repeat them, and meet them as their superior; disease is a coward that leaves when you are not afraid of it.

But she is not expected to know this; and it is a pity she had not continued longer under his mental treatment and not so long under her mother's

I was pleased to her your account of Miss Websters visit. Give my love to the dear girl; when you are at leisure come and see me always, and go to my students when sick. I feel the weight of sick folks terribly since my bookEditorial Note: Science and Health is at work. May the dear All-Father keep you ever from sin, or sorrow, sickness, or dreams! and the love that watches over you fill your being and compensate it

Remember me kindly to Mrs. Frothingham
