Thursday morning Aug 4th
My dear Sister,
A letter received from Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
yesterday has
[ a ]

Supplied

Reason: 
ltered all our arrangements– He wishes to come for me
next ^week^ that I may be there at the time of the Extra
Session - Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
has at length concluded to go with
me to remain two weeks– I cannot go next week
as our course of lectures is will not be completed
Henry cannot come for me the week after as Tuesday
is the 16th so he must send some one - Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
does
not wish to go down so soon and proposes remaining
and making you a visit after I am gone - He
says he cannot go to Albany (as he intends remaining
there as long as Henry does) without seeing 'Aunty'
or if you will come out before we go he can either
come for you or return with you as you prefer -
I shall probably be away until the 1st of Oct
I wish to be at home as early as that to attend
to the garden– I do not much like the idea

I hope to be able to visit Orange County &

Supplied

Reason: 

soon and let me know whow you decide- Fred is
quite impatient to know– I am afraid you will
be disappointed about Clara's visit but I know you
will agree with me in thinking she had better
improve this opportunity if she wishes once more to go
to the East– She will never make up her mind to
leave when I am gone and thinks it almost impossible
now- Willies
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
eye is not materially better— Henry
I fear will think me wrong in adhering to the homeopathy
method of care - he Willie is so much confined to
the house that he looks pale! pray - Love to Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
,
I have no letter from Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
this week and feel
anxious as his report speaks of slight indisposition
your own Sister
Frances
