Mr Campbell — he informed me yesterday that he would administer the Sacrement [Sacrament] in Charlotte when he preached there, I wish very much he was not going 'till Christmas, but I cannot think of leaving here till after our examination, and also at the Academy so that I shall not in all probability reach home till the 24th Decr— [December] I have not heard from brother John since I wrote to you, nor can I account for his silence I spent last Saturday with Mrs Peyton Robertson , she desired me to present her love to you and the little girls.

Your affectionate Daughter
