Auburn November 26th 1839
My dear cousin
I did not go to school to-
day because I had a bad cold. Pa
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
went to
Albany very unexpectedly with Mr Spencer
Birth: 1788-01-08 Death: 1855-05-17
about
eight oclock Friday morning. Mr Cary
Birth: 1786-08-11 Death: 1869-06-20
was here
today to see Pa he stayed about an hour. Aunt
Clary
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
has not had time to write to your Mother
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
.
It has been so cold that the creek has froze
almost across and it will bear on the edges. One
of my doves has died but the other one stayes
here yet and I freed him as much as he wants
he has not been out of his house but once
or twice since the other one died. Chitterbob
spends most of her time in sleeping on the
kitchen stairs, Snip
 Death: 1848
is not in the house so
much as Chitter threrefore he is not so
lazy. We have had two barrels of cider this
fall and used up one. Ma
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
is sick in bed
but she is some better than she was I
hope she will soon be well
Your affectionate cousin
Augustus H Seward to F A Worden
