My dear Sister Frances
In distributing among kindred
and friends, the articles of taste, be-
longing to my dear lost lady
Birth: 1769-11-27 Death: 1844-12-11
, Jane
 Death: 1886-04-10

and I were unable to think of any
thing for you more suitable than
the accompanying: a dotted, mourning
mull dress, worn in memory of our
dear sister Cornelia
Birth: 1805-10-29 Death: 1839-01-04
: – a cap and
a collar: trifles all; but sufficient
to call to memory the bright Chris-
tian example of one now gone from
us.
Your mourning brother
B.J. Seward
