not
coming – Fred

almost cryed – I wrote yesterday to Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

that if he still wished me to be there at the time of
the extra session that I would come down the week
after next – If you conclude to come out Fred will
go down with me I think – I hear nothing yet
from Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
and am still very anxious —
We went last evening to hear Fred Whittlesey's
Birth: 1799-06-12 Death: 1851-09-19

address before the young mens association – it was
an excellent address – I, like yourself have been
suffering dreadfully with headache for two days past –

to RochesterDr Robinson

said he would pass
through here on his way to N York this week and
he would come over with him – he does not come
yet – I am as ignorant as yourself about

The discourse which Sam
Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07
heard, and failed to com-
prehend, was some portion of the introduction to the
Geological Survey – giving the resources of the state

I continue of opinion that Prof. Bronson
Birth: 1800-05-23 Death: 1866-06-12
is a very
entertaining lecturer though I have never found him
a very great man – His voice is so unusual
and his elocution so excellent I wish you could
hear him – Withal he magnetizes and I am
going to see an experiment if I can gain admitt-
ance – J. Porter
