  Letter From Henry Platt to Parents 16-Dec-1806
Dobcross Dec 16th 1806
Dear Parents,
The approaching termination of the present
year gives me a pleasing opportunity of making my grateful
acknowledgements for your affectionate love and concern in promoting
my welfare. While you have been kindly encouraging me to apply
my time in the acquirement of various and useful
learning, I trust I have not been negligent in using the
days which your goodness has assured and
indeed owe the paths that lead to knowledge and understanding, and by
my improvement in such valuable qualifications, I hope to
be a comfort to you, happy within myself, and well received by society.
I am, with the greatest respect,
Dear Parents,
Your dutiful son,
Henry Platt
