Thursday 25 May
My dearest Henry, I some expect Uncle Cary
Birth: 1786-08-11 Death: 1869-06-20
to day
so I write a few lines although I have little encourage-
ment to do so from the fate of my previous letters.
Tuesday I received your letter written at Philadelphia
the 18th I had been anxiously expecting to hear from
you a long time. The letters which I have sent to
you directed to the care of Thurlow Weed
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22
. Albany
have all except one been returned to me unopened
the last was mailed here the 18th and returned the
21st. There is I suppose some mistake about this
but I thought it unavailing to write until I
received some further directions from you. We
are all well. Pa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
does not come home yet. We are
expecting him hourly. Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
has gone to Aurora to
spend a few days with Mrs Wright
Birth: 1806-12-25 Death: 1875-01-04Certainty: Probable
. The weather
is dismal rain, rain, rain. The Bishop
Birth: 1791-07-15 Death: 1861-04-30Certainty: Probable
is here to
day. I think I shall be confirmed, if Uncle Cary does
not come before I return from Church, I will write
more. Your own Frances.
Will you have the goodness to purchase for me 4 or 5 yds
of blue black crape, there is none to be had here but of an
inferior quality.
