Good content, written from the Retreat for the Insane, in which Dr. Butler, who had recently visited New Haven, writes of a Miss Barkerhe called on while there, who was "unwell, and "the perplexities of her situation are doing her great harm" - likely a refererence to her mental health.

Includes:

"It was not the least of my many disappointments last week, that I was unable to partake with Mr. B. of your hospitality. During neither of my brief 'calls' in New Haven, had I time to see you.

I called upon Miss Barker, regretted to see that she was evidently more unwell - the perplexities of her situation are doing her great harm, I fear. My object in this letter is to call your attention to her. I know not as any thing can be done, but I am alarmed for her, & fear to haveher continue in her present situation....

Could not Miss B. & her Mothervisit somewhere, either in or out of New Haven, till permanent arrangements can be made?"
