Dear Madam                                                   June 26, 1761

Julious comes for Betty - I hardly know in what manner to return suitable thanks to you and Mr Green for the troble you have taken upon this occasion - it was a near mistake her being Left but as I am persuaded apologies of this nature are altogether unnecessary to the person I am addressing I shall cease to make more.

Mrs Colvill and niece with Doctr Laurie dind hear yesterday and in the evening Mr W-n took his vomit - but it did not worke him well today he has begun with the Barke & and continues it till an ounce is taken.

I gave Patsy the mercury last night it has worked her twice. Our ears are mending very fast.

Our compliments are offered to Mr Green Miss Bolan and am Dr Madam

                                                 Your most Obed
                                                 Martha Washington

Please to send your Ear rings if you so resolved not to have yours now
