Bargaintown, July 22d 1835,
Tuesday evg.
Dear Frances,
Augustus
Birth: 1829-12-04 Death: 1867-10-25
has passed a much
more comfortable day than any since he was taken ill,
and we try to flatter ourselves that he is better.
This morning he was quite cheerful, called to his
little sister
Birth: 1834-07-25 Death: 1922-02-28
"sis" "sis," and took notice of
his playthings. O! what a relief to us to see
him in a measure free from the oppression of
fever. I shall look with great anxiety for the
next few days. It may be that a crisis has
arrived tho it is not very decided.
To add to our troubles, Cornelia
Birth: 1805-10-29 Death: 1839-01-04
's old woman
Unknown

finally gave out, the day after you left us, and went
home. The dear creature makes out better than
you could expect – so well that she refused
an offer of help today, because it was not so
good as she wanted.
I will write next to Long Branch.
Cornelia's love to you and Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
, mine also.
Yours, truly & affectionately
M. D. Canfield
