NEWBURYPORT MASSACHUSETTS 1865 LETTER TO DOVER NEW HAMPSHIRE - DYING WIFE

Sad letter from A. Caldwell to William Woodman reads as follows: I presume you would like to hear from us as you have always taken so much interest with family -- my wife had an operation performed on her Sunday the 8th & had taken from her two gallons of water which has been a good relief, but has left her very weak. She may continue some time longer with us, but is liable to go at any moment. She is more resigned than before.  Our physician Doctor Barker converses with her very freely, is a very pious man. I consider his visits for her spiritual...good is worth all his pay for other service...he is fully satisified she is prepared to go at any time which is a great consolation.  Please let our friends know the coontents of this In haste yours truly, A Caldwell.
