AbstractSamuel received a gray mare which is in bad condition and consequently out of commission for a while. In his eyes it is a great disappointment and an unnecessary expense. Samuel tells his nephew that Mr. Hart's sister just arrived. Samuel wishes to hear from Ralph at least once a week and hopes Ralph will make a short visit to the Springs soon. He conveys his love to Allen and hopes to send him some money to help with the business.

KirklandKirkland, John Thornton, 1770-1840; Kirkland, Samuel, 1741-1808 (Digital resource provided by the Hamilton College Library, Clinton, New York, 1796-09-09)Samuel writes to his son that the healing Springs have vastly improved his health. He entreats Thornton to pray for his health, because Samuel wishes to devote the rest of his life to God. He says that the medicinal waters of the Springs attract a geographically diverse group of people, coming from all parts of the country as well as from Europe. P.S. Sally's stay with Mr. and Mrs. Parson might be drawing too long, and she might be overstaying her welcome.
