Letter from Matthew Flinders to Isabella Tyler (2 of 2) (FLI25) Page 2

his friend was dead, replied that he would not believe
it without having it certified under his own hand: a
very commendable prudence this, and worthy of imitation
in all intricate cases. As I have a fund of justice at the
bottom of my conscience, which does not permit me to
exact more from others than I would perform myself, -
      I do hereby certify, that I have this day addressed a
      letter to my well-beloved sister Isabella Tyler, spinster,
      of the parish of &c in which letter I do desire for her all
      manner of blessings, spiritual and temporal; that she
      may speedily obtain a husband six feet high if it so pleas-
      es her, with the wishing cup of Fortunatus, &c
                    Given under my hand this 7th day of
                                              &c &c
      As I trust you will now believe, that I have duly
and truly written to you, I shall proceed in my letter.
And first my dear Isabella, let me kiss your pretty mou
[drawing of face]; and next present my respectful and most affectionate re-
-membrances to your excellent mother and to your aunt,
and say that I die with impatience to see you and them.
