Dear Henry

Poor Selina was taken from us on Friday morning about 9 O.C. She died very calmly. Slept away - We propose burying on Monday morning, leave this at 5 O.C. - And ban all, Strictly Private, So that though I write you this, don't wish you to come to the funeral at all. Anne, Lucy & James are quite well, bearing up as well as could be expected under such an affliction, so soon after poor Ada's death, but I am sure it's all for the best. It's our duty to be resigned to God's Will.

Yours very truly

W McCully

[William Henry Martin's sister Anne married William McCully in 1835]
