My dear Frances, I have not yet thanked
you for the pretty letter you sent me Freddy’s
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

letter is not as well written as yours but
he will I hope write better by and by—
Chitterbob grows fat and lazy every day I
am afraid she is to much petted to be a
very useful cat. Gusy
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
has a pair of tame
pigeons which he feeds two or three times
every day I have never seen them their
home being in rather an inaccessible place. Freddy
says it is as much as he can do to climb
up to see them so I thought I would not
attempt it. Uncle Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
has not come
home yet. I expect him the last of this
week. Tell your Ma
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
that Mr Nye
Birth: 1809-11-15 Death: 1885-09-28
was
married this morning to Miss Beardsley
Birth: 1818-07-16 Death: 1890-01-13

sister of Nelson Beardsley
Birth: 1807-05-30 Death: 1894-01-15
. We had never
heard that they were engaged—it surprised
us very much. We saw Mrs N. Beardsley
Birth: 1815-03-06 Death: 1854-07-16

and her sister Miss Powers

Editorial Note

Emily Powers
Birth: 1809-09-13 Death: 1893-01-01
or Caroline Powers
Birth: 1811-09-11 Death: 1896-07-28
going to the wedding
at 10 oclock this morning— You must take
care that the frost does not nip your
little myrtle some of these cold nights. The
boys have saved some seed for you of the Tiger
Lily and Chrysanthemum-your affectionate Aunt
Frances A. Seward.
