Dear Mrs Allonson
I beg to be forgiven for not addressing you before this on the subject of your late heavy bereavement.
My heart however has been with you; and prayers to the Good God have been constantly offered for the support and consolation of the Widow and the fatherless.
It must be a great comfort to you that your excellent husband while he lived set a christian example to your children and that he gave evidence of his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ when leaving this for a world of peace
I should have been obliged to hear more of the particulars of his dying testimony and to that end waited for a letter from you.
I hope your affairs are settled as to this worlds goods by your respected relations who doubtless have ere this paid a visit to Littlefort.
Mrs Chase joins in every sympathising expression which I write and with me prays for you and your children
Ever your faithful friend & obedient Ser’t in Christ P. Chase
