-pointed not seeing us yesterday. Pa

only commenced his suit -
yesterday and has another one with Uncle
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
today which will be
finished by noon. We shall surely be home tomorrow noon
Don’t let Dorcas

stay with you until then
Aunty

Dorcas some years since when you and I were here on a visit.

in a flaming red shawl &tc she made
many enquiries about you and sent her love to you. Every one wants
to know why you did not come too. Debra said Mr Bronson

her that I was here. The pen that I am writing with has a very
square point I donot wonder Uncle writes so indistinctly. I could
be contented here a month if you were here. Aunty has been
engaged painting up stairs all these two days. If you have not
had your blue muslin delain altered don’t have it made
with a belt Aunty says they are not worn. I will tell
you how they are made tomorrow as she has a new silk
made in New York &tc. You have a new black lutestring or
some such thing a cap collar and cravat. Willie

journey down
and that the girls have made us a visit if we had
had a girl Aunty has a new Irish. I must finish as it is time
that I was going to Clara’s. They were much disappointed not
having me stay there but I did not think it was best as I was to
stay so short a time. I have bought the yarn at Edd

wanted
to know what sort of a bonnet I had on and if it was my own make &tc.
Don’t let Dorcas know I am learned ofthe the fashions or she will

in the street. Now I must close So goodbye Your affectionate
daughter Frances
