Auburn June 27
My dear Brother,
            I am sick today which must be my apology for
giving you a short letter. Fanny
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
has passed the ninth day (a crisis is much
demanded by physicians and nurses) and though a extremely feeble is in
good spirits and perfectly free from pain and other unfavorable symptoms.
In Good Doct. Mosher’s language “she is doing remarkably well.” Today she
has by changed her meager diet of bread and water for more nutritious
food and I hope to be able to say the next time I write, that she has been much
benefited by it. The boy
Unknown
is quiet and increases daily in stature and
favour with the whole family.
I this morning received a beautiful letter from Mr. Blatchford
Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07

Will you say to him I will answer it when I have better spirits then I am
in the possession of the present. We all regretted his absence and were happy
to hear of his safe arrival at Albany. Do write me as frequently as your
numerous cares will allow you time. it cheers Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
to hear from you.
Yours ever very affectionately
Lazette
