Awbury 10 mo. 2, 1869 Dear Anna On our return from Haverford we received thy letter to Chelly of last fifth day & feel sorry that thy statement that you are all pretty well should be immediately followed by another that thee staid at home to rest while the others went to drive. This is not the getting well we hoped to hear of. I trust however it is the step next before the true well & that our next letter will be more favorable. I feel very sorry thee should have had such a doleful time with thy cold. It seems a poor way of building one up for the winter. I suppose the fact is that the proper time for recreation is before ones strength is exhausted by the hot weather & that in thy case it was too easily let slip by. Now it will take a little more time & patience to accomplish a cure than it would have taken to act as a prevention - and after thee gets fairly started on the right road I hope thee will go till thee feels really better. If thee should incline to take the Lehigh trip I dare say it
