"My Dearest Miss Finch, Many thanks for your very kind letter and when you have time to spare I shall like another very much as everything that concerns our beloved lady Cha. is interesting to us. I am glad you are better. Many thanks for all the kind things you say about me. I hope I am in the way to be better. The more I use one of my Doctors, the more I like them. Their honesty and kindness I cannot sufficiently express how I feel, and they agree with my dear Papa, Sir Henry Holford is quite angelick. Their medicines agree and I am sure they understand my case. I was sure dear little Georgiana would like her present. May every blessing attend you all & may you enjoy many happy New Years is the wish of your sincere friend A (melila) N.B. The last letter I ever had Windsor Jan 17."
