Editorial Note

June 28, 1836 was a Tuesday.

My dearest Henry, I am more than half sorry
that I promised to write to day I have had
two bad nights and my nerves are not in a
very composed state. I will not trust myself
to say anything now about your leaving me
all alone. I hope in time to feel that it is
all right custom reconciles us to many things
which at first seem unendurable. We have
to day had our first glimpse of sunshine
yesterday was cold and dreary. I did not
send the little boys to church. To day
we have had a cat scene which has not
tended to add much to my composure but
I will leave have a description of it for Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11

letter which he purposes to write soon. Mr
Birth: 1799 Death: 1839-08-25
&
Mrs Lucas
Birth: 1794-01-12 Death: 1876-05-12
came round this afternoon. Mr
Lucas is very much afraid we are all going
to desert the little church. I hope you were
not obliged to ride all day yesterday. Harriet
 Death: 1888-08-20

is in much better spirits since she received
those nine letters from Albany. This letter dear
one will only answer to shew you that I was
not unmindful of my promise. I will write
again when I hear where you are. The little
boys send love and kisses, remember me
affectionately to the Cary's
