Letter from Mrs Ann Tyler to Matthew Flinders (FLI01) Page 2

thing which calls either ^ for rebuke ^ or reproof Shoud [sic] you be restord [sic] to us again, which I
sincerely hope you will, & my advice in any case can be of the least use,
I will always be at your service, & shoud [sic] I ever see anything ^ in your
conduct that appears to require reprehension, I will then endeavour to
comply with your request. — Since I wrote to you the Lord has been pleas'd
to take your Father to himself, & I doubt not but he is now in glory
loving & praising, that great God & saviour, who saved him with an

& I may meet him when we have done with all things here. — You are
pleas'd to enquire much about your Sister Bell, she is in good health, &

little time given me, but was not willing to let the Packet be sent off with
out giving you a line. — You particularly request me to say if I think you
can do anything more to contribute to the comfort of your Wife than you have
done, I do not think she wants any comfort the World can give but yourself,
what you have been kind enough to leave her, is fully adequate to all her
wants, & I daresay with respect to temporal things she is as happy as
she wishes, or can be made in your absence, she has never left us but for a day
