My dearest dr Mitty,

      I perceive by yr letter tht you Recd the remaining part of the Song, as also tht yr dancing mastr thinks you hold up yr  head much better without a Chollar than wth it let me know if you had a storm of wind 4 or 5 days ago, & whether it did not unroof  the Capts barne & Stable, it has done very great damage all this country over many barns & houses blown down to the grd I thank god Newby recd little or non I believe if you had as much wind at dunham as we had here, it would fright you much, give my Service to my Lord & lady mary wth my blessing to my Dr missy

      I am Yr Grand Papa
