Thursday morning
My dear Henry,
I dated my letter yesterday but made
no further progress— having the headache all day.
I went in the evening to hear Dr Potters
Birth: 1778-04-16 Death: 1843-06-14
address to the
literary convention- I was never more highly gratified
the address was excellent – I felt fully compensated
for the next 14 hours of suffering which the
exertion I made to go cost me – I have not been
able to sit up until this afternoon– You
propose to come for me next week – I should be very
happy to see you here but do not think I can
go to Albany quite so soon – If you visit me
to be in Albany at the time of the extra session
I will come down the week after next – Prof
Bronsons
Birth: 1800-05-23 Death: 1866-06-12
lectures occupy the next week– I am unwilling
to lose them – Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
has about concluded to go to
Albany with me – McClallen
Birth: 1791 Death: 1860-11-16
I presume will go as
far as Sy Syracuse with us – I think it will

be quite as well for Mr. Underwood
Birth: 1818-02-08 Death: 1881
to meet us at Utica
as to come the whole distance – don’t you think so?
I take it for granted that your coming ever that
far is out of the question after the Legislative course
Let me know soon what you think of the plan
I have no letter from Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
– am very anxious about
him as Mr Kinsley's
Birth: 1802-02-17 Death: 1849-08-24
speaks of his being indisposed in
his report — My head is so dizzy I can with
difficulty see the lines– your own Frances
