Miss Virginia Kyle
Care of Mr. Ian Winston
My spirit of gallantry has more than once reproached me for committing so unceremoniously [spelled uncirimoniously] yesterday morning any such friend into the hands of another stranger but I trust he found an adequate if not a very entertaining seat[?] & in goodfaith delivered his charge to their kind friends who, not only know, but appreciate its value.
But for my business here
[Pg. Break] at Bank, none other should have had that pleasure than myself. The bearer of this is a young fellow from Milton who informs me that Mary Ann is gradually improving - poor thing, she has had a horrid time of it.
Make kind mention of me, if you please, to your uncle's family - particularly to the kindest[?] & accept for yourself the generous assurance of friendship & esteem of,
P.S. To George I shall request from him a weekly report of your doings etc. that I may faithfully discharge the least confidence to me by your good mother.
