Accept my dear Frances sincere thanks
for the present you have made my little
Sam
Birth: 1838
- it is the most beautiful cup I
ever saw - and is very acceptable not only
on account of its beauty and tones, but
actually on the score of necessity- as he has
but one which he has outgrown. I was
saying the other day that I really wish I
had one handsome cup for him to on
great occasions I shall surely never set
up the trade of wishing it is allowed with
so little trouble. When my dear Fan. will
you give me an opportunity at my house
to express my thanks to you in proper person
nothing would give Mr. B
Birth: 1791-05-14 Death: 1872-02-08
and myself more
more pleasure than to have you come out
and make me an unreserved visit the same
as you would Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

of your health and would endeavor to make
you at home. My love to Clary
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
and say to her
I hope she and Mr. M C
Birth: 1791 Death: 1860-11-16
will make me
a visit this winter. I have many things to
say to you that I must reserve till I see you
kiss your dear boys
x Birth: 1830-07-08  Death: 1915-04-25  Birth: 1826-10-01  Death: 1876-09-11 
for me and believe most
