Thursday Morning
My dear Henry
I received your letter by Mr Morgan
Birth: 1808-06-04 Death: 1877-04-02

this morning — suppose you will return to day
or tomorrow from Goshen — I am preparing to come
to Albany the 1st of October — think Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
will
come with me — I shall require about 50 $
to pay bills here independent of the money for
our traveling expenses shall I apply to Mr
Beardsley
Birth: 1807-05-30 Death: 1894-01-15
for the whole amount — I forgot to
thank you in my last letter for the box of fine
peaches you sent — The rain we have been
expecting has come to day and promises a long visit
it is time for the equinotial storm — All are well
Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
is with us — sends love — The Whigs I should
think are rather dispirited about election but I
have little opportunity of knowing — If you should

have an opportunity please send the carpet bag I
cannot well put up my things without it
I write in haste for the 2 oclock mail
Your own Frances
