Scope and Contents

"March 24 '75. My dear Lewis, My wife and I called to see [William] Boxall and found that he had not only pulled through this time but was quite frisky, not on his feet as he never was much that way. He looks better than I have seen him for some time; he seemed pleased when I told him you had made enquiries about him. I saw Dr Quain this morning and he told me that the President was tolerably well, and, for him, quite strong. So that it is satisfactory to know that the East wind cannot kill off all the good folk well up in years. I send this off merely by way of bulletin, as I know it gladdens you to hear of the well being of your old friends.- Ever truly yours, T. Woolner."
