came safely.
I am glad to hear you are enjoying health and reasonable cheerfulness
The election’s over. I have a levee daily of fifty applicants besides thirty
letters. When I am to prepare a message Heaven Knows.
The Presidential question does not go smoothly. My hopes of
the right one clouded, Mr C -
Birth: 1777-04-12 Death: 1852-06-29
does not withdraw & N.Y. City bears
him up stoutly. The country in our state is right. The last proposition
of the letter be, me as some of them was to put me second under
him. This I absolutely refuse to be - that is to be in any event or
on any condition on the National ticket
All well. Your own brother
Henry
P.S.

sister Cornelias

Yours
