To Dear Friend1 4 January 1822
My Dear friend,
You must known that I am very sorry about shakespeare when Maryane, told me to put it up,2 and I like Mariane excessively, she is so very good to Miss Jone,3 I will tell you a little accident that happened to me of course you know Miss Jones is in bed, and when I went there with Mariane last night, while she stoopped there I went in town and bought the cakes, and I came back sooner than Mariane was ready, and that foolish old man shoed in the bedroom then there was a bit of Kick-hoop, not that I went quite in, oh no, quite the reverse
Justice brust with a nose as big as your fist
PS I hope you were not much alarmed at Miss Clare4 accident
January 4, 1822
