4 pp, 12mo. Good, on lightly-aged paper. The unnamed recipient appears to have been named as executor in a prvevious will of Sir Henry Bishop. Opens in dramatic style: 'I was very greatly surprised to receive a letter from you this morning, dated from Brighton, as my poor Brother, Sir Henry Bishop, had not the slightest idea that you were still an inhabitant of this world, having heard of your death some time since, in consequence of which, he made another will similar to the one in your possession, but changing the executors'. The 'Policy of Assurance' which her correspondent mentions 'has not been kept up, indeed I understand the office has failed'. Her 'poor Brother was long an Invalid, & latterly a great sufferer', but she hopes the recipient will not 'believe, for a moment, that his relatives ever allowed him to want either the comforts, or the necessaries of life, no one could be more cared for, or attended to, by those belonging to him'. While she admits that her brother's 'pecuniary difficulties [.] might have been relieved, in a more feeling, & kind manner than they have been', her correspondent will see from the newspapers that 'his troubles in this world are at an end & I trust that our loss, will be his gain'.
