A Letter from a Gentlewoman at a Boarding-School in Hackney, to her quondam School-fellow in London.Indeared Friend,
I Have laid aside the exercise of my Needle, that I may employ my hand some little time in the management of my Pen, that herein I may assure you, that the strong inclinations I have to manifest my self your friend upon all accounts, will not permit me to let slip any opportunity wherein I may evidence this truth. I am troubled that you are not always as ready to honour me with your commands, as I am zealous and forward to obey them. That cordial respect I bear you, hath so strongly link'd me to you, that into whatsoever condition fortune shall throw me, I shall still retain the memory of your affection, and must not live when I cease to love you, whom above mine own welfare I esteem, and therefore must subscribe my self, dearest friend,Your most affectionate, etc, M.G.
