My Dear Brother,
I received your
kind letter, Tempe
Birth: 1812-09-30 Death: 1848-10-18
has been
suffering a relapse for the
last 36 hours more sever
than any former presence of
her illness, on Sunday and
for some days previous
we were in hopes of her
speedy recovery but on Mon-
day evening she was fallen
with a sick stomach and
efforts to vomit attended by
sever cough. this continued
to increase until Wednesday
morning, through Tuesday
night it was almost
without interruption

and was exceedingly dis-
stressing, reducing her strength
and apparently hasting her
dissolution,
There has been a consultes
of Physician on her case
this evening and I am in
hopes the with a favorable
result to their proscrip-
tion a few days and perhaps
a few hours will determine
the event so whether I am to
lose my partner and our
children

a tender and affec-
tionate Mother
Thursday morn 6 o clock, Tempe
has another distressing night
I do not know that she is any
better, her life is in the keeping
of her God and there resignedly
I leave it Your brother
