Sunday July 24th
My dear Henry,
I have been expecting a letter from you
a number of days and every day have deferred writing
until the next— I will wait no longer as you
will not be in Albany many more days— I
presume your "Introduction" has occupied all your
time– We have had some very warm days–
every thing progresses much as usual– Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

does not come— Serene
Birth: 1802
leaves on Monday–
Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
and I went last night to hear Prof. Bronson's
Birth: 1800-05-23 Death: 1866-06-12

introductory lecture– I was so well pleased
that I intend attending the whole course, taking
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
with me if I can persuade him to go—
Willie's
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
eye is getting better— What about
the birds? I am afraid it is getting to late to move
them it has been so long deferred– do they begin
to droop or give evidence of moulting? I should be
sorry to be obliged to have them all winter—

Willie is expecting Jenny
 Death: 1843-06-24
, the quadruped, with you–
I shall expect you Thursday– your own
Frances
I have neglected to mention that I sent a check
to the Bank for $25 the 6th of July—
