Auburn Jan 17th
My dear Sister,
I have been too unwell to write
the two last days – Freddy
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
received your letter
Tuesday – he has commenced an answer –
I have written to Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
to day that if he still
thinks it advisable for me to go to Albany
that I will be ready by the 1st of February
will you be ready then – I have felt so unwell
for a few days past that I have felt almost
discouraged about undertaking the journey
but am in hopes to feel better – When
shall we look for you out – Fred insists
upon expecting you Saturday as he says
that is a fortnight – I am sorry to hear
you have been so unwell I hope it was
not in consequence of your ride home
Pa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
does not go yet I think it doubtful
whether he goes at all – he is I believe now
waiting for Gerry Sacket
Birth: 1790-08-09 Death: 1865-06-02
– I hear nothing
more about Cornelia’s
Birth: 1805-10-29 Death: 1839-01-04
death – have no new
letter from Gusey
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
Polly Ingols has disappoint-
ted me I have no dress made yet she
promises to come next week – it is so late now
I can get no one else – I hear nothing new – a
number of ladies have called upon you since you left –
I will write again in Freds letter
Your own sister Frances
