Announces that her time in York is drawing to a close, and asks Henry when he plans to come to Rugby and if his friend Mr Cowell is coming with him. Thinks of going to see some friends in Craven. Reports that her sister [Elizabeth?] has not been very well in the past week. States that Mrs McKenzie, the [ ] lady comes there the following Tuesday to take her [Mary's] place. Fears that her presence there did not do her sister the good she had hoped it would. States that she has little to report as she has seen very few people, and has not been reading much. Claims that she has had very few letters, and none from Rugby.
