Letter from Matthew Flinders to Ann Flinders (11 of 41) (FLI25) Page 3

to say that the gentle Mr Bauer seldom for-
-gets to add "and Mrs Flinders' good health" after
the cloth is withdrawn; and even the bluff Mr
does not forget you. Your friend dripping
pan is behind me in another box in the coffee
room. Heaven preserve him against very hot
    Thou wilt write me volumes my dearest
love, wilt thou not. No pleasure is at all
equal to that I receive from thy letters. I have
indeed almost given up every thing since thou
    left me. I go on shore seldom, and
    then only upon busineƒs. I keep retired
and think on thee. The idea of how happy we {ought or might}
be, will sometimes intrude itself, and take away
the little spirits that thy melancholy situation
leaves me. I can write no longer with this con-
-founded pen. I will find a better tomorrow. Thou
wilt not be gone before Thursday at noon.
May the choisest [sic] bleƒsings of heaven go with thee
thou dearest, kindest, best of women.
    Remember me kindly to Mr and Mrs Hippins
and continue to love thy adoring husband
      Mattw Flinders
