Wednesday evening - Aug. 26
My dear Henry, I received your letter this morning
in answer to the querulous epistle I sent you
last Sunday – I was very unkind to trouble you
when you have so many other sources of
annoyance – but as I told you at the time
I was suffering with neuralgia and ought not
to have written in so impatient a frame of
mind – I trust you will forgive me I will
try to behave better in future –
All my boys

better that I propose setting out for Canandaigua
in the morning if the weather continues favorable
I received a letter from Lazette

has no inclination to accompany me I go alone
with Fred and Maria

along pretty well – I intend remaning a week
