A letter from Jacob to brother Rev. James Wellman regarding family matters, including the death of brother Abraham Wellman


31 Jan 1781

Dear Brother,
Let these inform you that I am sumthing Comfortable at present. I have had a fall off a Log about four months ago and was much hurt so as to be unlikely to Labour any more but I am well to what I ever expected to be. My wife is in a very poore State of health and I never expect she will be well. I hope she is not near her end. Our Brother Abraham Wellman is Dead. He died on the ninth Day of this January and not far from the middle of the night. He has left his family in a poore way having young Children and no man belongs to the family. My son James is there and I expect will stay this winter and take Care of the family.

From the Descendents of Thomas Wellman of Lynn MA.
