Abstract:

Announcing the birth of his first child, a daughter: "About 5 this Mor[nin]g Mrs Elliston presented me a daughter under as favourable circumstances as perhaps were ever experienced & I add with much pleasure that she is as well as her situation can possibly admit"; writing that he is concerned about his uncle's health: "indeed I was sensibly affected at your being so low, & cannot but persuade myself you are worse than you confess"; saying that he arrived in Bath from London on Saturday afternoon and has not felt "any thing very disagreeable from my fatigue, tho I assure I do not purpose to repeat it"; asking his uncle to convey the news of the birth and Elizabeth's good health to Mr. and Mrs. Martyn.
