Auburn December 9th. 1824
My Dear Father
I wrote a few days since to my mother
Birth: 1769-11-27 Death: 1844-12-11
stating my conva-
lescence from an attack of the Quinsy. I have continued to grow better.
This is the first day of my coming to the Office. The physicians
bled cupped, blistered physicked & scarified me so severely that
I cannot yet get strength enough to enable me to attend
to business. I have now before me your three several
letters in the subject of the judgement against Westcott
Birth: 1769 Death: 1842-04-26
. I
have I believe already advised you that I had written to
Judge Sleight
Birth: 1792 Death: 1843-03-01
& possessed him of all the necessary instructions
to proceed to a sale. I presume that before this reaches
you you will have received a newspaper containing the
advertisement-and I shall lose no time nor pains in
having the sale speedily & effectually consummated.
You must hold me excused from writing more at large I
am almost exhausted with the exertion of writing so much.
Remember me in affection to my mother sister
Birth: 1805-10-29 Death: 1839-01-04
& friends

Yours affectionately
William H. Seward
