Box 2, Folder 1
Rush, Benjamin, 1746-1813
1 Leaf
Physical description:
3 pages; 24 cm
Scope and content:

Rush points out that he has received no letters from Julia. He gains strength but must eat often to avoid becoming "weak and fainty." His patients now hand him a glass of milk or crust of bread as they would hand another a glass of wine. He adds that their servant, Marcus, has been very faithful and that his mother is well, but complains of the high cost of housekeeping.
