Editorial Note

July 8, three days after arrival of letter dated July 5 and at same time as other letters addressing the subject of SSS's illness
.
My dearest Henry,
A letter has this moment arrived
from Juliann
Birth: 1811 Death: 1847-07-24
dated the 5th of July–which says you father
Birth: 1768-12-05 Death: 1849-08-24

is still dangerously ill with inflammatory fever–he
wishes you to come to him immediately–Your Mother
Birth: 1769-11-27 Death: 1844-12-11

is sick and they are much distressed–Julia adds
in a postscript that unless your fathers fever soon turns
he cannot long survive–she mentions having written
to you at New York but supposes from having heard
nothing that you are still at home–I expected a
letter confidently to day from you but as it does not
come I think you may have gone to Florida.
We are all well–your own Frances.
