Auburn June 16th
My dear Son,
I received your letter last week
this is my first attempt to write, except a
few lines yesterday – you must not expect a
long letter as I am still so feeble that
I can make but little exertion – I sit
up now a great part of the day and take
tea with the family – I have been in the
garden to day with Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
and Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
– Fred
carried a chair so that I could sit down
very frequently – the garden is full of roses –
Your father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
went to Batavia Thursday and
has not yet returned – I expect Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24

with him when he comes – I trust by this
time your examination has passed satisfac-
torily to yourself – I shall expect to hear the
result in a few days – If you remain
I think I shall come down in early in
August – you must let me know if I
can bring you any thing – I send you $5
which is all that I have at present should

you require more before I come let me know –
Your father was very ill while in New York
with the erysipelas
A bacterial infection •
he came home before
he had recovered and suffered much for a
week or ten days – is now well again
Aunty Worden
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
went home after a visit
of two weeks – All the family are well –
Willie wonders if Gusy will know him
when he sees him – your affectionate mother
