My dear Alice,

We have heard to-day of my darling [Lissie's?] illness; & I write to beg that you will write, or set some one to write for you, telling us how

she is.

Words are weak & insufficient to tell the depth & intensity, of my love for my darling [Lissie?]; & I thank you a thousand times for your attentions to her.

I trust the fervent prayers ascending on High may be [gracious?] by [answered?].

My Brother & myself & all of our darling's friends are so anxious to hear from her,

Love to Carter Randolph & all of the dear children
