Brooklyn 18. Aug. 1860.
My Dear Br. Lamson.
Your kind letter is recd
The letter you directed to Liverpool did
not reach me that I recollect. It has seem
ed long since we heard from you & our
precious Daughter Mary. I am not well.
Tearing away from so many dear friends
made us both sick. Wife has recovered
more readily than I have. My principal
difficulty now is lumbago. I have suffered
much with it during our passage. We must
get home as soon as we are able to endure
the fatigue. Will you give our love to
all our dear friends. We have seen glorious
times in England, but it seemed to
be duty to return home. Besides neither
of us could have gone on without rest
much longer. I am too ill to write
much just now. With oceans of love to our
Dear Mary & the children & as much
for yourself as you can desire. We are as
ever yours in the love of Christ
C. G. & E. A. Finney.
