My Dearest Sister,
Augustus has consented that I
should fill up the remainder of his letter, dear
little boy how he likes to talk about dear little Nealy
Birth: 1836-08-25 Death: 1837-01-14

dont you think he has improved in writing. I promised
to say that he wrote the lettter all himself, which he did.
I received yours yesterday morning. I wish very much
you could consult some physician of sufficient abilities
to determine the nature of your disease, were the pain in
your side I should think all symptoms indications of a
liver complaint. I have no doubt the pain you experience
in different parts of your system all originate in the
same cause. I hope to be with you next summer and think
you will be benefitted by riding and exercise in the open
air. I will understand your present feelings, I have for years
had my physical energies so completely prostrated that
the least movement required an effort. Old Mrs Sunbury
Unknown

is like many other people who cannot comprehend the existence
of feelings which they have never experienced. I hope you
will not be discouraged, my health is better now than it has
been in 2 years, the headache is still pretty constant but
I have more strength. my little school has not a favourable
effect on my eyes and I could not now write you a long
letter if I had time paper my dear boys read for me. Poor Rathbone
Birth: 1791-08-02 Death: 1845-05-13

has lost his little boy, a serious affliction for him. Garry Sackett
Birth: 1790-08-09 Death: 1865-06-02
has
lost an infant 2 or 3 months old recently. Mrs Horner
Birth: 1780 Death: 1856-12-09
took tea with us
Wednesday you can fancy how much she is endeared to me since the death
of my little girl
Birth: 1836-08-25 Death: 1837-01-14
. it seems to me a great while before I can see you and

[top Margin] talk with you, but if our lives are all spared I hope we shall meet in
the Spring. I received a letter Friday from Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
, he arrived at Chautauque
Saturday morning - all well. Mr Cary
Birth: 1786-08-11 Death: 1869-06-20
left him the next day, he has written
for Mrs Cary
Birth: 1787-08-11 Death: 1863-06-22
to come here and spend a few weeks here she is still at Schnectady
with Walter
Birth: 1818-12-21 Death: 1880-11-01
. I do not think Henry will go to the East immediately.
Your Sister
