2. Nathaniel Chambers: Letter to his daughter Katherine, 2 Aug 1750, Hackney ESS.
Liveing Archive. IMG 2813 - IMG 2817

No (My Dear Kitt) I am not angry why should you suggest it? The very suggestion would tempt an indifferent person to believe I can be angry as well without a cause as with one and I should be sorry to deserve such a character. We shall all be glad to see you when Mrs Pickering will give you a letter of licence to depart. For in truth she is the sole arbitress in the affair. I rely on her word of honour that you shall return after the races. For we begin to think the time long till we have you amongst us. Your mama's gouty complaints increase upon her daily and though she has no violent fitt, she has nevertheless a very precarious and uncertain health and never without pain.
You seem (my dear) to swim in pleasures and amusements but I hope you do not suffer yourself to be so swallowed up with them as to lose sight of your ultimate duty which alone will open a spring of constant pleasures without alloy. A little cool reflection will easily show you the difference in the account of losse and gain.
The extra ordinary civilities you have met with exceed any kinds of acknowledgement we can pretend to make. I leave it to your discretion to make such invitations hither as you think proper. If Mrs Pickering will return with you and spend the autumn with us, she shall have her share of nectarines and peaches and shall meet with a hearty welcome. I believe you must make the same invitation to Mr Abree and Mr Pickering to whom make a tender of my compliments as well as your Mama's and Sisters. I am my Dear,
Your affectionate Father
Nath Chambers.
