27 September 1777

82. Mary Doddridge (cousin), Northampton, to Mrs. Mercy Doddridge, Sr., 27 September 1777. [f. 64]

Glad to receive her letter but displeased that the pickles she had sent arrived in a damaged state. Glad the children and grandchildren are doing well. Mr. Buxton has sold his house, and a Mrs. More sends her regards to Mercy and her other cousins along with some books. Mary says she is glad to hear that Dr. and Mrs. Stonhouse and family are well and "good Mr Orton." Sends her compliments to Mrs. Humphreys and children.
