Wednesday morning –
My dear Henry,
The Whigs being defeated you
will not be very likely to have any information
from this quarter – I write what I hear from
Mc Clallen
Birth: 1791-09-07 Death: 1860-11-16
– which you will find rather indefinite.
The county has gone against Morgan
Birth: 1808-06-04 Death: 1877-04-02
– majority
not known – Seneca County a large majority
for the Loco's – Rochester every ward Loco –
this is all that I have heard – this town
gave Morgan a majority – I am unable to learn
how much – I would wait until Pa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
comes
home to dinner but my letter will be too
late for the mail – There has been so
much confidence and enthusiasm among the
Whigs for the last week that I had hoped for
a different result — Love to Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

Your own
