Editorial Note

Augustus Henry Seward dated the year incorrectly. It should read 1836.

My dear Pa
Ma
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
had a letter from you
Saturday. I began to write a letter sun-
day but My thumb was sore and I could not finish
it. Ma is getting better every day she sits
up two hours at a time and walks all about
the room. Ma hopes to be able next week
to go down stairs. The baby
Birth: 1836-08-25 Death: 1837-01-14
grows fat and
laughs every day. Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
is some better
than she was when you went away and has
been here to day.
One night last week 3 men
Unknown
went to Mr
Muirs
Birth: 1790 Death: 1868-02-17
house and hid themselvs for the purpose
of stealing. The hired girl
Unknown
caught them
carrying off spoons and bed clothes and
Many other things thingss they almost killed the
girl and then Mr Muir came and they ran
away and dropped the things which
they had taken. The men
Unknown
are putting the
iron railing around The Exchange buildin-
gs. Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
