Amelia Opie to Unknown: 23 December 1847


My dear kind friend

I write in bed & with one eye nearly closed! But must write to thee to thank thee for thy note I do & will hope on thou hast made me understand the case-

I was not aware of difficulty of breathing —

I fear dear Aunt Sally, is, as yet, too sanguine

But I trust all in mercy will yet be well. I hope for another line or two from thee.

I <see> thy report

is as good as a medical one

Love to thy mother & thanks for her message —

I do indeed feel this anxiety

Thine affecly

A Opie
