[addressed to:] Miss Mary Lyon, Preceptress, Buckland MA [another address crossed out]

Jany. 4 [1825]

Miss Lyon,

We shall have at least one section of ladies to work on [?] within [?]. We shall charge nothing for ladies of the day class this term. Would it not be well for you to spend the term here? You would then be well prepared.

Yours,

A[mos] Eaton

I presume you received your apparatus in season. Mr. Howard told me, that he sent it in July. I was sorry, that I could not do you justice in regard to my attention to your apparatus. I have spend but six days at home since I saw you, until since my [word unclear] lectures. And these six days were divided among four visits at home.

Yours,

A[mos] Eaton
