P.S. I add this postscript to tell you about Mrs Gregg; she has been in great distress about her daughter, Mary, who is you know the sole comfort & support of her old age. For many weeks Miss Mary's life hung on a thread, she was so very low with a nervous fever; but now I am glad to say that she is convalescent. Mr Gregg has recently inherited another large fortune; it is not a crying shame that he should let his wife & daughter struggle with poverty, while he rolls in wealth. While Miss Mary was ill, a friend of hers, wrote to Mr Gregg that his daughter was suffering for the comforts, considered essential for her recovery; hoping that such an appeal might touch his stony heart: I have not heard what effect the appeal had.
