I was very glad to hear from you and that you
were all well your father
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
left on Sunday afternoon for Albany
very unexpectly to me for I had concluded that he would
not go attall but he took quite a sudden start and left in
quite a hurry and as he said he should return the first
of April or at least he thought he should and that Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11

would come with him I have commenced cleaning his room
immediately so that I should be sure of having it done
when he returns and in addishion to that I have got
Levina Taylor
Birth: 1813 Death: 1900Certainty: Probable
here makeing a waist to my coat she has
been three days afiting one waist I have come to the
conclusion that I had rather have any thing in the
House than a mantaumaker I think cleaning House
is quite a pleasant thing to what it is to have her
here she seams to think – she must make trouble
I have not been out of the House since I last
wrote to you I have not been very well since but
have got quite well again Mrs Pitney
Birth: 1797-12-04 Death: 1862-05
and Mrs Morgan
Birth: 1813-02-16 Death: 1893-10-14

I rather think it is not true what has been said
about Maria she was here yesterday I told her that
you thought of takeing her this Summer she said
she would like to go very much was very much
pleased withe the idea thought of going I rather think
the coloured people say more than is true about her

very much busyed ever since Tomy has
