Editorial Note

The previous writing is from a Letter from Lazette Miller Worden to Augustus Henry Seward, October 6, 1846
My dear Cousin - Mother has left me a little scrip to write you a
few words — I suppose Ma has written you all the interesting news -
We missedother you very much in our last visit to Auburn particularly
When we went to Aunt Clara’s
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
— It seemed very strange not to see
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
& and to talk of him at College - Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
is to spend

Thanksgiving with ^us^ he gave such dreadful accounts of
the manner in which holidays are spent at Geneva
that mother
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
invited him to come here - If it is half as
dreary at West Point today as it is here fires must be a perfect
luxury — Do you feel as much inclined to have war with
Mexico as ? At Detroit I met a young cadet who had
just graduated by the name of Snelling
Unknown
who had
been ordered to Texas & was in high glee at the idea
of active service & promotion- Write to us soon your letters are
always acceptable & believe me your affectionate cousin
Frances
