I sent you two miniatures in
Love to sister Emily and all the children to Eliza and Phillips and little Stephen—keep them at school-—remember me to H. Austin and his family. I know not when I shall be at liberty, there is no more prospect now than there was nine months ago. I am of the opinion you may look on me as dead for a long time to come. I wish you all peace and happiness. Your affectionate brother
