The wind is fair, and I write to bid you farewell. Dear friend, farewell, may all happiness and good fortune attend you during my absence. Write to me. Watch me ! I need not say how much of affectionate feeling I have for you, a how deeply sensible I am of your friendship and watchful kindness, and how amid all changes and chances, it will survive till I survive no more, or till we meet again.
Yours, dear friend, with kindest regards to Prior*
and your sister, Very affectionately,
P.S. Kellf left me yesterday, he saw two shipwrecks.
