Summary:

Misplaced Smith's letter. Has never been more alarmed for his country than now: "there seems such a spirit of anxiety and indolence gone forth" by statesmen "are only occupied by squabbles for places".
His sister's [Charlotte] happiness and well-being has revived since Mrs Kinderley kindness [offering to take her to India]; asks after the ship and provisions. Depature of Dr [James] Anderson a heavy loss: "he is a most valuable respectable man" and has recommended a new system of farming so that in a few years he will become "one of the greatest shepherds in the Island". Anderson strongly recommended sowing grasslands with 'Millifolium' or yarrow and asks Smith's assistance in locating a dealer; from the voracity with which it is eaten it is a very valuable plant. His books finally in his library.
