Letter from Lady Grace Campbell to 'Mr Campbell' (no address) concerning family news.

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
