My Dearest Sister,
We are all mixed up wonderfully
here but I have made a little place on the table
just large enough for a sheet of paper. Miss
Oakley
Unknown
is here sewing and Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
is keeping store
Miss Oakley has made a calico
Plain white cloth made from cotton, but which receives distinctive names based on quality and use • Printed cotton cloth •
dress for me
which I think will set very well she is to
make Clarys
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
silk. I bought a calico
Plain white cloth made from cotton, but which receives distinctive names based on quality and use • Printed cotton cloth •
dress for
you just like mine if you wish me to send
it to you must say so I thought unless you
could have it made there it would be useless
I have not been out of the house yet, my limb
has been very weak and painful so that I
am unable to walk much. I have received
two letters from Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
since I wrote before.
One of them he sent by Mr Rutherford
Birth: 1816-11-16 Death: 1892-05-30
a young
gentleman from New Jersey who has come to
study with Henry, he brought also the
“Last days of Pompeii”
Author: Edward Bulwer-Lytton Publisher: R. Bentley Place of Publication:London Date: 1834
which I will send you
as soon as I have read. This I cannot
do in so short a time as you not being
able to use my eyes much at a time.
You have read Stone’s
Birth: 1792-04-20 Death: 1844-08-15
criticism of this work
and as far as I can judge he estimates
its meris’ merits very correctly. Henry writes
nothing very new, he and Uncle Cary
Birth: 1786-08-11 Death: 1869-06-20
are living
in our old rooms very pleasantly going to the

theatre and ‘dining out’. I believe they make a point
of dining with Rathbone
Birth: 1791-08-02 Death: 1845-05-13
every Sunday. Jennings
Birth: 1793-08-23 Death: 1841-02-24

is there on Sunday School business. Polydore
Birth: 1799-07-02 Death: 1872-04-25
has
run away again and is considered a hopeless case.
Henry desires always to be affectionately remembered to you
I believe I have seen no one since I wrote before
but Isaack
Birth: 1791-04-30 Death: 1853-04-03
and Marthy
Birth: 1792-05-02 Death: 1866-01-14
they are very constant
in their visits Sunday evenings. I will send
the things you mention if Miss Riggs
Birth: 1806-11-10 Death: 1898-10-19

your hood I expected it was certainly done
today and have just sent for it but it
is not quite finished I think I can certainly
send it Tuesday. Clary says her teeth
trouble her so much that she feels pretty
much discouraged, it is getting dark and
I must conclude. Report says F. Dibble

Little Fred has had no more trouble with his
hand and I begin to feel assured that it will
not pain him any more. Henry says that Tracy
Birth: 1793-06-17 Death: 1859-09-12

says it is intermitting, that he will get over it
but protest against the use of Iodine.
Grandma

would give a great deal to see cousin Frances
