My dear Maclean,

I send you just a line to say how grieved I have been to hear of your severe sufferings and to express my hope that you may speedily be yourself again.

Your case makes it evident that the strongest constitutions are unable to resist the effects of continual exposure in this climate. I hope you will take care of yourself in future.
