Saturday evening 5th Aug.
My dearest Sister,
We have this moment received
Uncle Cary's
Birth: 1786-08-11 Death: 1869-06-20
letter from Buffalo. I feel very
thankful that you all arrived safely at
that place. I am very anxious to hear your
account of it. I had a very lonely, homesick
day after you left. We went in the afternoon
to the harbour to see Mrs Pathin
Birth: 1812-05-03 Death: 1898-05-18
and Miss
Davis
Unknown
who were there waiting for a boat to
take them to M Detroit. I have since
learned that they waited until the next
morning and finally took the stage to Erie.
Henry that day received a letter from Rathbone
Birth: 1791-08-02 Death: 1845-05-13

saying that he was at Buffalo awaiting
your arrival with much impatience,
should continue to wait until Wednesday
so I suppose I did h not have the felicity
Great happiness; blessedness; appropriately, the joy of heavens • Prosperity; enjoyment of good •
of
meeting him. I think it possible that you may
have changed your mind and remained at
Batavia so I direct this letter there. It appears
now very doubtful whether Jennings
Birth: 1793-08-23 Death: 1841-02-24
and Marcia
Birth: 1794-07-23 Death: 1839-10-28

go at all but Henry

Supplied

Reason: 
he will be able
to accompany me himself the latter part of
next week, if you continue at Batavia he
wishes you to meet us and visit Niagara
with us. I am afraid you will hardly con-
sent to this though it would make me very
happy and I think would benefit yourself,

let me know immediately where you are and what we
may calculate upon. I will write again and make
some definite arrangements, it is dark now, if
you are still with them remember me affectionately
to Mr & Mrs Cary
Birth: 1787-08-11 Death: 1863-06-22
, kiss Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
for me, dear Gusy
Birth: 1820-05-18 Death: 1889-05-08

I suppose has gone on.
your own Sister
Frances.
