are struck down by it – I had a visit lately
from the Bp [Bishop] of Wakefield (Walsham How)
He told me that in a pop. [population] of 30000 there
3000 were down at one moment
and a very large percentage of deaths
so much so that he preached on the subject
and he is one who takes the most cheerful

I was very glad to see dear Libbys writing
last week I feel uneasy about her – for to one

& the "pace too good" for many to come to me
a lame duck such as I am now –
