            To John Campbell Esq
            Advocate at Levenside
            Dumbartonshire [sic]

            My Dearest Moitié as this is the twentieth of the month, I hd some distant hopes (as you said you’d be back by this time) to see you to day or Tomorrow, however the arrival of yrs My Dearest by this days post has disappointed me greatly, for I see by it you are only about leaving Inverary [sic] now: I think indeed My Dear since that is the case ‘tis better for you to stay at Levenside till the Circuits come on, as you r to attend them, than to make this journey; ’twill be a great deal more agreeable to yourself being there, and give pleasure to your Papa and Mama who has scarce seen you yet, as for me I thank God I am in grate [sic] good health & only omitted writting [sic] by the post you mention upon account of Company coming at the time I had allotted for doing it, but if youll remember my dearest I was far from insisting with you to write evry post, or oftener than you incline it, for I should be sorry if to gratify me you were to put yourself under any sort of restraint, & when I omit a post I always think it does not signify, because I know that so much fondness as makes one uneasy at a neglect of that sort, you would look upon as romantick, & therefore I take it for granted dont run any risk of that kind, which makes [sealing wax damage to document] more remiss than I should be otherwise, but far from [document damage] mindful of you My Beloved Orsames than during the period that you said days seem’d months to you while we were divided, I enclose two letters ie one from Ld Banff came to day, & as I thought it contained the news of Lady Banffs delivery I opend it. the other has been here some posts but because I thought you might see the Author of it at Inverary [sic] I quite neglected to enclose it all this time. remember me my dearest so ceptably to all at Levenside, & let me hear particularly about my poor little Folks. Jackie I have a notion is not so thriving as his Br so write honestly if tis so & believe Me My Dearest yours for ever Grace Campbell

            To Mr Campbell

            I received yours My Dearest by this days post, & am sorry to find you think of [?] the Lords to Perth for I thought you was not obliged to wait on them out of yr own Jurisdiction, & people of the Law have told me even that was optional; I cant but think my dearest [?] peoples who press yr going to Inverary [sic] must either be very thoughtless or very selfish to ask you at a time when you have been so long from Home, the folks here abouts on the contrary wonder that you stay so long away (as tis not look’d upon at all as necessary) when I am living without a Soul to speak to except Infants & Servants, those who are used to this way of Life may think it comfortable, but to me who have always livd in a large Family tis really something new; not but there was generally some body coming when the weather is fair, but the long nights curtail the length of their stay greatly; Miss Peggie Campbell was here some nights with me, & I was in hopes she’d have come again, but I believe She that is used to so good a society at Home did not admire living here so I have not seen her since; Mrs Campbell was in great concern tother day when I was at Bruce Hill because Mr Campbell talkd of going to the west for a fortnight; so you see whether I have reason to tire; I saw Mr Johnstone a day or two ago he drank tea with me, & talkd of writing to you by that nights post; he seems heartily tired of the Town for want of some acquaintance for he says he has not scarce any Body to speak to, so notwithstanding his turn to Study he’d soon tire without a companion; you’ll see by the mondays papers that the poor [?] Lyon has paid his debt to Nature, a pluratick fever has carried him out of this evil world, poor soul if he was rightly prepared for a better I’m sure he has made a most desirable change; he complain’d a good while of a pain in his side without fearing the consequences of it, I fancy He has been taken off very suddenly; I see My Dr by yr way of writing that you intend going to Inverary [sic], in which case I think youd better go from Perth as you first proposed for ’twould save you a great deal of needless travelling: Archie I think has been better since Sunday; the cure you recommend I saw d: Austin give [document damaged] to Mrs Campbell [?] son without the [document damaged] success, archies illness is in his Stomach which makes a vomit & Rhubarb the best thing he can get, he is taking Rhubarb every third day just now which I think is the thing agrees best of any with him, his food is all solids, but till these few days he eat nothing, & had very bad digestion; but both I hope are mending fast. The rest are very well. I conclude My Dearest Life Yours GC
