Scope and content

Written to Forfar, document damaged

This is wrote in such a hurry I have only time My Dearest to tell you we are all well, there is no news in town that I hear, I long vastly to know from you if you have fix’d any time yet for leaving your present abode, Lord Strichen gave me bad encouragement for he told me he thought the Lords on the Northern Circuit & you would meet at Perth, which would not be till October, however I don’t wish you to come till you can stay for all together for that would be creating fresh uneasiness; I am Mon tres chere moitié toute a vous.
Grace Campbell
