Dear Prue

The Afternoon Coach shall bring you ten pounds. Your letter shows You are passionately in Love with Me. But We must take our portion of life as it runs without repining and I consider that Good nature added to that Beautifull form God has giv'n You would make an happinesse too great for Humane life.
