January 28— 1818Dear Cousin

I expected are [ere] this to have herd [heard] from you I am sorry that your correspondent is of so little value that you fail to answer the first letter. I should not have troubled you with a second, but from a consciousness of not being treated with that respect and friendship which is due to your Cousin, I could not forlorne [forlorn] to complain, I immagine [imagine] from your long stay that you have depended more on your own choise [choice] than you could on mine, which was very write [right] , my only request is that you will fetch the lovely unknown with you when you come. I should be extremely glad to form an acquaintance with one whome [whom] I immagine [imagine] (as she is your choise) is all perfection

we are all in the land of the living Brother Wm has just [added: (Wm R. King?)] returned from [gap] Brother [added: John ] Devane [added: Died Young] & Mother are in a low state of health the rest of us are well.

Yours forever
