Although she has been in real distress following the death, she acknowledges that there is one comfort that 'will never fail in any Calamit[y]', and she submits to the will of God.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at Maddox Street [London].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Original reference No. 13.</p>
