Rev. John Kimball,

Dear Sir,
I have attended to my duties here with the utmost interest, & care, & have not left the School, without your knowledge, & permission, until last Sat'day week, my child was sick, & not expected to live; (this I can prove, by Dr. Garland, who I employed to attend it) & intended to inform you in my report, for the month. It has always been my motto, that any thing, worth, doing at all, is worth doing well. (this I can prove by previous employers) & not one of the Trustees has ever been in the School one hour to see what interest, I manifest, in its duties. When you come, you will see that I have been at work, since I came here.
