has none of the silk remain-
ing. I was referred to Arnold & Hearn but they too had
sold all. I shall retain your pattern and look more faith-
fully in other places. I thank you for the commission, small
as it is. It evinces faith in my professions of a desire to
be made useful. I regret to hear of the complete failure
of Fredericks

long? I have a sweet revenge I think. Your brothers

he has been willing to stay thus long. Mr Blatchford
Birth: 1798-04-24 Death: 1875-09-04

mentioned his indisposition. It is over now and he is himself
again. You, I presume can scarce realize, all that is passing here.
I trust and hope that all is for the best. Saml

Saml: can give you a

. You will love her I am sure.
Please make my kind regards to Mr Seward

to him that I have two cents and my thanks for his pretty
knife in keeping for him. Love to my own boy and your
two darlings
