Editorial Note

Due to the abrupt opening and lack of salutations, it appears that a page (or more) of this letter is missing.
when Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
boards – Mrs Spencer
Birth: 1790-01-12 Death: 1849-08-17
will be able
to give her advice on many points considered
by the frivolous inhabitants of large towns
as quite essential to respectability
I do not think that it is best for you to make
any arrangement to come out until you come
to stay – unless I should be dangerously ill
in which case I shall of course send – You will
be occupied with necessary preparations for the
winter until Frances and Worden
Birth: 1797-03-06 Death: 1856-02-16
go and
about that time I shall probably be more
alone than previously – My health is miserable I
think more so than it ever was before but though
this is rather a disheartening preparation for a
severe trial it is no guide for future calculation
Greeley
Birth: 1811-02-03 Death: 1872-11-29
speaks disparagingly of Henry’s address
which I think is rather an unfriendly display of
candour – a private communication would have
answered the purpose better – it has not convinced
me that address is not good – it would undoubtedly
have suited Greeley better had it been imbued
with a portion of Fourierisms
Birth: 1772-04-07 Death: 1837-10-10
– I presume Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
has no money to go to Canandaigua – perhaps
he will not be permitted to leave as he told me
when he was home that he could not come

again until vacation – if he can go I will see that
he is supplied with funds – Mrs Dennis
Birth: 1812 Death: 1861-05-21
gave a
large party last week of which we have heard
nothing – I tried to persuade Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
to go but she
would not – your own Sister –
