Norwich Conn. Oct 6. 1831
My dear Seward
The hope that an acknowledgment of your
late favour will reach you at Albany depends on its transmission
by this mornings mail now about to start. I can therefore only
scratch a few hasty lines–
I am sorry you did not receive the letter I forward-
ed to New York as it would have kept me in your mind so far
as to have prompted some communication from Baltimore
that would earlier have relieved my curiosity– But perhaps
it ^was^ as well for evil news rides past.
I can not indulge a remark relative to the result
of the convention lest I should say more than is prudent. The
vortex I have always feared we seem to be rapidly ap-
proaching. The moment antimasonry becomes only another
term for Anti Jacksonianism that moment our fate is
sealed– I pray God my auguries of the fruits of late
measures prove fallacious–
My health has improved, but ^is^ not sufficiently
restored to justify travelling– A few days I trust will
enable me to set out for home and on my way to
Buffalo. I shall if possible see you– How much I wish
to do so you must conjecture from your own feelings

is not very well but I think not likely to
be seriously sick– Give my affectionate remembrance
to all our friends–
The whole family desire to be
warmly commended–
In great haste Yours
Albert H Tracy
P.S.
Just see that Bacon
Birth: 1789-02-02 Death: 1860-02-21
the clerk makes out my cer-
tificate & has it signed as the court doubtless will
be adjourned before I can reach Albany–
