I have a slight touch of ye Gout Spring & Fall which I look upon
as highly salutary. – The Dutchess’ Head Gardiner is just now arriv’d,
who informs me; that She is coming hither with all her family. How
we shall agree together I know not; for She was enrag’d at my not
returning with her; tho’ at ye same time She knew I had a fit of
ye Gout then upon me; & She was to travel by Land at ye very worst
Season of the year. The difficulties She met with upon ye Road are
not to be express’d. Her Coach alone weigh’d three Tons, & was oblig’d
frequently to be dug out, when twenty Horses could not move it.
But Vanity & Obstinacy are two of the most shining parts of her
Character. Pray give my Compliments to yr poor Brother; & assure
him: that as I know his Merit, no one is more griev’d at his ill success
than, Dear Sr. Yrs most sincerely & affectionately
Jno Forster.
<p>St. Petersburgh Oct. ye 12th O.S.

P.S. My Tackle is miserably bad; but I hope my letter – is legible.</p>
