Letter from Matthew Flinders to Ann Flinders (10 of 41) (FLI25) Page 3

his foolish days are not yet paƒsed. They are now over
at the Isle of Wight, botanizing and scrutinizing, being
as well as myself anxious to begin their labours.
    I am very sorry that thy eye again adds to thy
ills; but am satisfied that weeping and uneasineƒs
are the causes, if thou hast not lately caught any
    Be aƒsured, my love, that no opportunity
of writing to thee shall ever be paƒsed by. Madeira
will be the first place, and the C. of G. Hope most pro-
-bably the next. In two months after we sail, thou
mayest expect to have a letter.
    I beg of Mr and Mrs Peake again to accept my
remembrances and thanks; and of thee, my dearest
love, I beg, to consult thy happineƒs and mine, by
making thyself so composed and as cheerful as
poƒsible. Repine not at the ways of Providence.
Give not to Unbelievers an occasion to doubt thy
reliance in him; and rest aƒsured of the unalterable
affection of thy own wanderer
