Yale College Feb 16th 1819
A letter that I have just received from Orlando has placed me under painful solicitude relative to the health of my interesting little cousin James. From Orlando's letter I fear that his indisposition has been dangerous, and from your silence, that it continues so. Do then my Dr. Uncle write to me immediately and free me from my present suspense, which I assure you is painful. My best love to cousins and my respects to your friend Mrs. Phillips.
Your affect nephew
P.S. Excuse this short scrawl, as it was written only for information relative to my cousin. I continue to enjoy good health. MB
