Summary:
Mrs. Jay says to tell Kitty she is very well. John Jay says she is much better and almost over her rheumatism. She has learned to spin on the great wheel and exercises her fingers. She will give proof of her improvement by writing soon. Dr. Foster and Lady brought letter and gloves mentioned in one of Kitty's letters. Jay hopes late successes in Jersey have raised hopes and reduced anxieties. Jay's father is indisposed and wears away fast and speaks often of wanting to see his grandson. It would be nice if the child could come, Brockholst, Susan or Kitty could come with him. Suggests route. In hand of Sarah Livingston Jay: fears journey too difficult but is eager to see family there. Expresses gratitude to Hanna for care of her little charge.
