Friday morning Dec 23d
My dear Fred,
I should have answered your
nice letter earlier but have not been well
this week in consequence of hurting my head,
withal the horrible death of Philip Spencer
Birth: 1823-01-28 Death: 1842-12-01

has made me sick enough without any thing
else — I pray God to preserve my boys
x Birth: 1839-06-18  Death: 1920-04-29  Birth: 1826-10-01  Death: 1876-09-11 
from
temptation and sin which can bring such
sorrow upon their parents
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

Your Grandpa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
was much pleased with the
writing in your letter — I hope you will write
the next as well — Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
has also recei-
ved the letter you sent her and was much
pleased with it — She thinks if your Uncle
Birth: 1797-03-06 Death: 1856-02-16

goes to N. York in Jan – that she will come
out to see you — Willie’s eyes are
almost as bad as they were last summer — Say
to Mr Underwood
Birth: 1818-02-08 Death: 1881
I received the medicine &c

and am very much obliged to him —
I think you will find the weather too cold to
day to play out with the little Strong’s

You must not forget, my child, to go and
consult

about your teeth —
I do not insist upon having them filled unless
he should positively advise, and then your Pa had
better decide, but cleaning them is indispensable
and had better be done there than here —
Willie says I must write a letter for him
to Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
telling him to come home and bring
his sleigh and horses so that Willie can ride.
You do not write me any thing about
the arrangements for morning — I hope for Harriet
 Death: 1888-08-20
’s
sake the weather will not be as cold as it
is now — Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
has written for his
skates — I send them by Mr Willard
