My father have at most made up his mind to come to America, but he wishes for to have a letter from you. First, I have no good news to send you of England for our country is in a shocking state. For there is neither work nor money for one half this country. Mr. and Mrs. Parker of Kings Norton was very well when we heard from them last and sends their kind love to you all. Your brothers are all and your sisters and grandfather is about the same as when you saw him. Father and mother sends their kind love to you. Please to give my love to my cousins and accept the same yourself. I remain your affectionate nephew, William Thomas Lowesmore Worcester
