[Transcription]

Hartford Sep.ber 28th 1819-

Mrs. Phillips received your last letter my dear papa several days ago. She has since been very unwell & confined to her bed two days; she is still very weak & will not be able to leave here before next Friday morning. -

I wrote yesterday to cousin Mason to inform him when we should be in New Haven, & to day I have written to cousin Mary Ellis to beg she would be ready to join us on board the steamboat at Elizabeth Town on Saturday morning, as Mrs. P_ is anxious to get to Bordentown on that day.__

Mr. Andrews is to be here this afternoon, but I do not believe Mr & Mrs A will go farther than Middletown with us.-

We shall not go through New York. I am in a great hurry and must bid you good bye. My best love to all.
Adieu dear father.
