Wednesday morning
My dear Henry,
I received your letter yesterday morning
I ^am^ sorry you have so many things to vex you – I did
not dream of your expecting me with Blatchford
Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07
he
said you told him you did not expect me in two
weeks and as I then had had no answer to my
letter I supposed that was as early as you thought
it necessary for me to come – What you tell
me of Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
has made me decide to go down
next week – I wrote to him two weeks ago
desiring him to inform me when his vacation would
commence, as it was my intention to be in Albany
at that time – he did not answer my letter
probably thought it the same thing to write to you –
I presume his clothes will require attention – it
will be better for me to come down than for
him to come here and return again in a short
time – I am desirous to complete all our

arrangements in Albany so as to be able to come
home with Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
the 1st of October –
Frederick
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
is still at Canandaigua – I shall write
for him to come home Saturday. We will be
ready to come any day next week that you
or Mr Underwood
Birth: 1818-02-08 Death: 1881Certainty: Probable
can meet us at Utica.
Mc Clallen
Birth: 1791 Death: 1860-11-16
will accompany us as far as Syracuse
I prefer to go through in one day –
I have made use of all the checks you sent
me – shall require money for the journey and
some 6 or 8 dollars which I owe here –
Willie’s
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
eyes are no worse – nor materially better –
your own Frances –
