Summary:
Although Dr. Watts has not yet been able to determine the nature of little Maria's complaint, he feels that she is much improved. He has given her nothing so far but "small doses of rhubarb, a little qusia [sic] and few tablespoonful of lime water to be taken during the day. He says this is preparatory to iron filings, the effect of which he hoped to render permanent by preparing her stomach to receive it." Augusta hopes that John Jay's rheumatism has not become more painful. "My dear Mother" suffered a painful attack of rheumatism, which has confined her to bed.
