Rebecca Budd Comly1818-10-11John Comly--"Thy friends generally appear much interested in thy comfortably getting along, and all are pleased to hear of thy having a suitable companion. On this account I also am truly glad. Yes, my dear, my anxious mind is much relieved, but thou wilt still have my sympathy and my desires for thy preservation; and I hope thou wilt not be too anxiously concerned about us, nor about any of thy affairs, &c. at home; for I think nothing of these will suffer in thy absence. I will endeavour to attend to every thing as well as I am capable, particularly in watching over and instructing our dear children, who feel deeply the loss of thee. Thy message of love together with the advice communicated to them, I trust will be beneficial."
