Scope and content

The recipient's mother, brothers and sisters are all well. The writer's last letter concerning what she is to learn in school was misunderstood. He meant only to learn what the school teaches for her needle and other works which she is to look after, for she will grow too old to learn hereafter. Therefore she is to make the best use of her time. As for her music, he did not mean her to burden herself with diversity of music, but only to keep herself to the virginal and to practice her hand with the viol, which is all he desires at present. PS Her father and mother send their services to her aunts, to Col. Lloyd, Col. Anwyl and her master and mistress.
