Auburn Nov 15th 1838
My dear Cousin,
Ma
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
is not any better than she was,
I recieved your letter on Wednesday evening.
I think Buttercup is a funnier cat than Chitterbob,
for Chitterbob does not play half as many tricks as
Buttercup. Mr
Birth: 1806-08-24 Death: 1874-05-16
and Mrs Carhart
Birth: 1811 Death: 1897-01-04
gave a party last
night and Snip
 Death: 1848
went with Grandpa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
without being
invited. Chitterbob got into the water-pail last night
on purpose to imitate Buttercup I suppose. Chitterbob
was weighed this morning and she weighed five
pounds and ten ounces. I have nothing more to say.
Your affectionate cousin, Frederick.
From Chitterbob to Buttercup,
My dear cousin Buttercup,
I want to see you very
much but I cannot come to Canandaigiua for
the same reason that you cannot com to Auburn.
I am a handsome cat and love to purr. My
master’s
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
brother loves me very much. Snip went.
to the party last night but I did not,
Your affectionate cousin Chitterbob.
to Butter Worden.
