And thereby thy Account in my Books is exactly closed & all in conformity to thy directions.
Since the 12th we think my dear wife has escaped the return of her Chills & fevers, or nearly so- so that we look toward her gradual amendment, or hope it, which because of her very great reduction, may be slowly, tending to gaining health & strength as yet she has been, but very little off her Bed & Scarcely more than the necessary changes.
Deborah has been better & more poorly by turns, & seems now rather different not similarly oppressed, from which I hope she may be relieved & begin with a gradual amendment from her present disabiity, so tht she also, may be restored slowly. Both of them however have [illegible] the Doctor says, somewhat of the same disorder, or a similitude therein. the weather being remarkably warm, has at tendency to reduce & debilitate. I hope however, that I may be enabled in my measure to contribute & that eventually they will both be carried thro, wih a portion of that sensation of mind, that feels, a sense of the divine hand being the stay & the staff to lean upon thro the time that may be allotted us here. They both desire their love as does also Sarah & Thomas, both bravely in health, united to thee & to Sister, with thy affectionate Brother, Samuel R Fisher
