Editorial Note

Misdated letter, Sunday in March 1829 was the 15th
Sunday March 16th
My Dear Henry, This is the fith day since I have received a
line from you perhaps you do not write again until you return to
New York. I have not any idea how long you stay in Monmouth
nor the distance of that place from New York. I have been looking on the
map to try and ascertain where Cornelia
Birth: 1805-10-29 Death: 1839-01-04
resides but was unable to
get any satisfactory information. I find a town of Bergen in the
County of the same name but am sure that cannot be the place it
is so near the city —  I must defer writing until I hear from you again —
The four weeks have passed still no promise of a return home I am fearful
you will find the travelling very bad fortunately you will find no ice
Augustus

refrain from laughing. They are to be married this Spring -- go immediately
to New York – return and take possession of the house which has been
the residence of so many Dills

barrels of liquor in the different parts of the house which appears
to be quite a laborious operation and particularly suitable for
the day — - I have not heard anything of my four last letters I
hope you will get them all — I shall expect a letter do tonight if
it does not come I shall ‘cry, cry, cry‘ as Augustus says —
