Philada 1 mo 31st 1834Dear BrotherI wrote to thee a few days ago and sent along with mine several other letters from thy friends here to go by the Brig Funchal from N York. Another brig, the Elizabeth, I have since learnt is to sail from thence if she has not already gone. I write thee a few hasty lines now in order to embrace that opportunity if in time.Except these two opportunities we have met with no direct conveyance to Madeira since thy departure. All our letters & newspapers have gone by way of England. I send a file of the latter from 18th [----] along with this.In my last I mentioned that brother William was in town. He is at present at Bristol. His health is good. Although he conducts his affairs very quietly I see enough to satisfy me he is well pleased with his prospects and I anticipate his marriage before long.
