Montgomery Ala. Febry. 29/48

Dear Sir.

I am happy to inform you that our friend Dr. Jarvis is entirely out of all danger. I think that you may feel perfectly easy about him. It is hardly worth while to particularize any of his symptoms as his improvement is sure though slow. How long it will be before he is able to start for home I cannot tell; we thank God that he will be able to get back at all. He is already beginning to count up the distance and the time. He is a man of real practical philosophy and bears his afflictions with fortitude and resignation.

I will write again tomorrow.

Yrs. very truly.
J. Marion Sims.

Rev'd William Jarvis,
Portland,
Ct.
