16th 6th mo. 1807Dear ParentsHenry informed last evening that he was going to write to you, but he told me I might as well write too and so I did All the things come safe but I thought Henry had two pairs of trowsers there was but one pair come in the bundle; perhaps there was but one pair made. I don't know, but I thought there was two. We had to get our coats alterd; Henry had his done before I came back, I expect mine will be done to day. Frd. Sharpless says I must either have my round-a-bouts alterd or not wear them. I wont get them both alterd, but I must have one alterd, or else have a new one. It will be about three quarter dollars for altering our two coats and my round-a-bout. I shant get it alterd till I hear what you have to say about it I seen Benjamin and Abigail Sharpless yesterday they appeard to be well. We are both so and hope you are the same. My poison is quite gone. My love to all. Goldsmith has had as fine a ride as any. He may come pay me a visit for all I care I conclude withYour affectionate sonFrancis Cope
