My dear Uncle,
Allow me to make use of this oppor-
-tunity to ask if you know how soon I may expect
my Father
Birth: 1793-08-23 Death: 1841-02-24
here: his last letter leaves me in doubt
& says that it depends somewhat upon the letters
he may get from you. If you will be so kind as to
send me word as soon as may be ^convenient^ you will greatly
oblige me as I am laying some plans for spen-
ding the 4th in the country.
Please let me know also the state of my Aunt F.'s
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21

health – I hear she is quite unwell – is it so? — my
love to her & the boys
x Birth: 1839-06-18  Death: 1920-04-29  Birth: 1830-07-08  Death: 1915-04-25  Birth: 1826-10-01  Death: 1876-09-11
