Philander Chase has read his granddaughter Laura's letter from July and is grateful for the updates on the health of the family. He asks her to inform him of Rachel Denison's health when she goes to visit her. He then writes that the drought has devastated most of his crops and he is struggling to plan for the winter. Finally, he updates Laura on the "Romanism" situation and his letter to the Bishops.
