Poughkeepsie March 28th, 1824.

Dear Sister!

By our paper from New York viewed last evening we received the tidings that our beloved friend, your remaining sister had exchanged languishing, sighs and pain for the happy regions of eternal safety, peace and ecstacy! On this bereavement we feel for you and we feel for ourselves. Through the whole of life she never separated from you, and like Martha and Mary you were considered and truly loved: Mary and Martha were believers in the same LORD who was adored by you both.

My wife, my daughters, my sons & myself condole with you my beloved sister on this solemn occasion. I assure myself that your health is re-establishing, and that my excellent brother - The young gentleman, and the pair of charming Juniors are all in health. Ever consider as your affectionate brother H. Livingston
