Transcription Phila. 10th mo. 29th. 1860. My dear Friend, I have been invited by my New York sisters to lecture to them. Our managers have kindly consented to my going. I did not inform thee of it before because the time had not been fixed. Now if nothing occur [sic] to prevent I am going on the 10th of next. It seems a weighty service. I doubt not I shall have thy warm sympathy. I hope you now have comfortable health and your sister also. When I read “Ragged Homes.” I thought of thee, and wished thou wert well enough to go into such homes in this city and that I could go with thee. My husband was quite ill last week with neuralgia in his left eye, he is now able to go out though not well. With love to your sister, I am affectionately yours. S.M.D.
