wrote to brother Robert, from Reigate:

My dearest Brother Robert,

Though thou are absent thou art not by any means forgotten in this time of trial, and I do sincerely hope thou has been supported from above. The arms of the Lord <have?> been around us in an eminent degree, and I believe fervent prayers have ascended for the support & protection of all and every one of us, thy self and dear Martha not in the least forgotten.

Yesterday we committed the remains of our precious Father to the silent grave and we had a solemn meeting after where much advice and consolation was extended and a very sweet and precious evidence that our dearest Father had been called to "one of the many mansions prepared for the" "humble followers of Christ", and each one of us dear Robert must so conform our lives to the will of our Heavenly Father, that when "time to us shall be no more" we may all form one happy family above where no sickness or sorrow can ever enter.

A great many kind friends came to pay the last tribute of respect to our dear parents remains – amongst whom was Daniel & Eliza Hack, J. Sharp, Peter Bedford, as ministers Uncles William and wife, Andrew Aunts Emma, & Fanny, Cousin<s> Alfred, Isaac, Catherine, and a great many friends that would take some time to mention, – after dinner Peter Bedford gave us his warmest wishes for our support and craved a blessing of him who is able to bless – Daniel Hack also spoke for some time in a remarkable manner encouraging each. I must not forget to say thou with us has been most kindly remembered by our dear Friends at Southampton. Joseph Clark came yesterday on seventh day on a return to day and his presence was truly comforting together with the Kind messages from all the family. Dear Mother is calm and sends her dearest love to thee and <from?> every one here with thy affectionate Sister Mar<y>
