This letter is part of a series of courtship correspondence between Jonathan Abbatt and Mary Dilworth (later Abbatt). The Abbatt family was a Quaker family who lived in the towns and villages of Preston, Ribchester, and Garstang in Lancashire, England. The letters chronicle the courtship, discussions of faith, local events, shared sentiments, etc. Mary sometimes addressed as Polly in the letters. Please note that the months on the letters’ dates were added as numerical values rather than the month's name (e.g. 2 Mo = February). Jonathan tells Mary he didn't make it to Sam's Christmas party because he was busy with stocktaking, but he did make it to a different party. He talks about a sermon he attended by Joseph Jesper. Jonathan's uncle passed away and it was mentioned in the Chronicle Newspaper.
