My Dear Martha
I am truly sorry you have reason to complain of my apparent neglect. I can assure you in the sincerity of my heart it was not intended. Your letter remained in the Office until a day or two since; because it was inconvenient to send to the Ford. We have been engaged bringing corn from the [?river] & are not any thing like done yet, with no horses, but those that belong to the carriage, & they are much reduced. Your Mother & myself are anxious to see you, & never pass a day without conversing about you, but, I fear it will not be convenient to send for you at Easter, if however, I can I will certainly do it. I am confident it will afford me as much pleasure to see you as you can realize by being at home. I am highly gratified to learn your determination to [torn] & hope you will make great progress [torn].
Your size & age both, will make it necessary for you to leave a publick school before long; you should therefore, employ your time to the best advantage as it is very short. Your dear Mother requests me to say to you she is extremely anxious to see you. She has made what you requested in your letter. Your Scarf is not here she presumes you carried it with you. We go about so little my dear, I have no news to give you, please present our affectionate respects to Mr & Mrs B. your Mother unites with me in expressions of devoted attachment to our dear Martha.
Addressed to: Miss Martha W. Wright
