Adelaide May 17 1859 
My dear Edward 
I received your long looked for letter dated February 17th. I was sorry to hear the sad Newse of your dear Grand Mothers death, I trust what was your loss was her gain. I was delighted to hear her end was a happy one, it is the only comfort left for those behind, we could not wish her back again to this world of sin and misery. I hope your dear Mama has been Given Grace to bear it with Christian Pacience
