Dundee 27th Sept

1857

Dear Sir

The illness of my aged mother renders it impossible to specify the exact day on which I hope to be with you But I shall know when I reach Kendal on my way South & will let you know at the earliest moment I got your note of 23 two days ago at Dundee but have been so busy I could not answer it and now I fear it is unsatisfactorly you had better hold the annual meeting at the usual time & the next a small one of the friends of missions in general as I do not appear specially for the London Missionary Society but wish to enlist the sympathies of Christians in general for the new field I am

Dear Sir

Yours truly
