Teusday night –
My Dear Henry, I have sent one letter to the office to day but Mr Hills
Birth: 1785-11-04 Death: 1856-09-25
is
going in the morning and it is the last opportunity I shall have to write I
cannot consent to let it pass. Last night it rained and thundered and
lightened all night. Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
had the nose bleed and I was obliged to be
up with him in the midst of it all. This afternoon Mrs Horner
Birth: 1780 Death: 1856-12-09
took tea
with us she is a dear good woman – moves next week. This morning your
Saturday letter came your visit to West Point accounts for the delay.
I expected it yesterday. Sarah
Certainty: Possible
and Augustus took the letter up to Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

after dinner she thought she would come down this evening but does
not make her appearance yet. I shall not give any directions about
the dress you so kindly offer to purchase for me. I do not need it.
I think another 7th shawl I think ought to more than satisfy my desires
for dress. Augustus will require a new cap or hat of some kind if you
think it better to purchase it in Albany than here please do so. I have
no choice. Hugh
Birth: 1791 Death: 1860-11-16
is here to night to see Clary
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
. She will not let Maria
go out of the room one minute or I conclude he will make little
progress in his matrimonial calculations. One week from to night
or to day rather the Legislature will adjourn and three more days
will make us all so happy – but you know I am almost afraid to
anticipate happiness or I do not allow myself to say any thing
about it except to the little boys
x Birth: 1826-10-01  Death: 1876-09-11  Birth: 1830-07-08  Death: 1915-04-25 
. The four days meeting commences
on Thursday. Lansing
Birth: 1807-12-05 Death: 1888-04-24
has arrived to night as a prelude. It is almost 9
oclock the time I am to send my letter over good night dear one your own
Frances.
