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.
