March 10, 1843, Oak Hills; from J.W. Nicholson, Mary Chrystie's great uncle, to his sisters Catherine Few (Mary's grandmother) and Maria Montgomery (Mary's great aunt). Mr. Nicholson writes to express his condolences over their recent loss (of Mary?); he then goes on to mention the dire illness of his own daughter (named Frances) who suffers from consumption; he mentions his own health problems and complains of being "very weak," a condition he says might be related to his total abstinence from wine and spirits since joining the Temperance Society some months previously--he does, however, acknowledge that his debility could stem from old age.
