Abstract:

Apologizing for taking so long to reply; saying that she is "in a very musical phase (which you will not be sorry to hear), and I am giving a good deal of time to it;" commenting that his "account & diagram of the apparatus seems promising. Have you yet actually put it into operation:" saying that "Dr. Carpenter will be very much interested in the progress of this renewed experiment. We talk of trying it ourselves now shortly but we find many difficulties & that to test the results with any certainty necessitates a quantity & sort of preparation and of appareil altogether, which only exists in an established laboratory;" It is not yet certain that Dr. Carpenter will permanently remain with us; & this still-existing doubt has made us delay many things we may perhaps do if he does remain;" saying that her health has improved; crediting her improved health to his suggestions when she was at Bromfield; asking if he has heard "any more about Mesmerism? And what are your present opinions upon it? I quite agree with you that your best & ... refuge from all troubles is in your Science. That is a great soother of agitated feelings, & in this respect you are indeed a fortunate person. I generally see indeed that there is compensation of some kind or other, in all situations; & I think lots are very even in this world on the whole;" sending her regards to Mrs. Crosse.
