Auburn June 9th 1844
My dear Aunt,
Mother
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
is a good deal better than she
was when you went home. She has been out riding
once. Father’s
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
hand is almost well. He is going to Batavia
Tuesday. Mother thinks she cannot send Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
with
him as she has no girl and Abbey
Birth: 1822 Death: 1895-09-16
has not had time
to sew any. There are a great deal of roses out. I
counted sixty-nine on the outside walk of the garden
and there will be five or six times as many more.
Willie spilt nearly a bottle full of camphor on his face
this morning. Mother was afraid it would make his
eyes sore again; but it does not seem to have hurt them
any. Grandpa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
has bought a horse. Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
received
another bunch of flowers last night. The following lines
were pinned to a rose-bud.
Would I were a little fly
In this rosebud, I would lie
To see what faces you would make
When you, these posies take!
Mother says she hopes Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
will come out with Pa when he
comes back.
Your affectionate nephew
Frederick.
