I wish Uncle Tommy I had something interesting to communicate.  The weather has been so bad and so much nosed(?) on the streets I have not been out to see any of my friends, except Mrs. Sullivan.  The old lady has been very sick and is still confined to her room.  Ma and Eliza spent the day with me on Tuesday.  They are both very well and wish to be remembered to you.  They informed me Mrs. Dickinson was better.  Emily is with her.  I hope by her good nursing she will soon be well.  The folks in and round New Market have all called to see us.  I hope we shall have the pleasure of your company when you return.  Nothing would be more gratifying I do assure you.

Yours affectionately,
M.P. Winthrop
