My darling friend
[...] I was very much annoyed at receiving a Boston Post' with a comment upon Miss 'Edwina Booth'. I cannot imagine who could have given publicity to such a private matter; they knew little about it--to say 'born in Manchester'--Edwin had been playing there--perhaps they meant him--could "nature so err"? Boston will ever [inserted] continueto recognize gossip that's certain: well we must forgive it, for all the good it otherwise does.
[...]
Adieu, I will write Lucy soon--so tell her. Follow my example in your next--and tell me all about yourself-Cherish and love ever, your affectionate friend
Mary Booth
My kind regards to Mr Cushman--whom I hope is in the enjoyment of health and happiness.
M.
