 [...]
I sent you my dear sister by the last vessel a small jar of Rasberry
jam and another to Mrs Perkins, I had not time to write to beg your
acceptance of it I hope it will prove good. I am afraid it will be
longer on the water, then I thought when it was put on board not
knowing then that the vessell was to put into an out port before
it went to Boston, if you find it has fomented, any, give it a
boil up and keep a brandy layer over it [ . . . ]
