Sunday afternoon –
My dear Henry,
I am sorry you are harassed with
applications relating to Colt
Birth: 1810-03-01 Death: 1842-11-18
– more sorry that he does
not evince any penitence for his crime – If Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

gets sick do not fail to send for me immediately

constitution as myself – I am anxious since you
write that he is suffering from a cold – above all

I place them in correct order as regards

has not yet finished hanging the large
picture – The grate is to be set next week – We have
carpeted the south room & nursery – This week I shall

lodging place – I do not well see how you are
to make an office of the nursery without any outside door
it will make a thoroughfare of the rest of the house –
I hear nothing about the election – as John
Unknown
is a
Loco he is not as communicative as Peter
Unknown
was —
With all my work in the house I have many things
to attend to in the garden – Tell dear Fred that
I received his letter yesterday and will write soon.
Lazette sends love to you both – I received the
checks – Your own
Frances —
