Editorial Note

This letter is dated on June 12th, but given the day of the week it is probably misdated and should be June 11th
– Friday
My dear Sister,
I am not in the least disposed
to take "No" for an answer any more than Bill
Heart
Unknown
was of yore – As for the matter of
clothes Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
expressly told me to see that
you had what you wanted so you
must either get them there and let
him pay the bill or let me know
if I can suit you here any better – Your
expenses of course were included in the
invitation – Now you will find some
other excuse but you had better not
we may never have another opportunity
of going together – rather than disappoint
Henry I have concluded to go and leave
Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
at home with Grandpa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29

I shall take with me but no nurse –
Abbey
Birth: 1822 Death: 1895-09-16
came last night – she is so glad
to get back and Willie and Fan are so
happy in her company that I hope I shall
be able to over look all her short comings–
Clara
Unknown
left me last Friday- a week
ago- she is now with Mrs Blatchford
Birth: 1798-07-24 Death: 1857-12-23

I will tell you more about this

on the way to Chicago– Abbey says
Harriet
 Death: 1888-08-20Certainty: Possible
told her that she thought of
going to you in July– have you heard
from her – I cannot tell you
how much trouble I have had about
Henry's going to Albany to live which
I believe he is determined to do– perhaps
it is not decided yet– he has a
very good offer and thinks he should
accept any business that would enable
him to pay his debts– He is only
a visitor at home now– will then
be a less frequent one as he does not
insist upon my going with him– You
will not think strange that I prefer
to remain here– I write a very
hasty letter as I have four to write
this afternoon– You will want a gingham
for traveling and a muslin or silk
or something summer of that nature–
Shall I look for them here– I am
still cleaning house slowly– Ann
Unknown

who does the kitchen work (not the
Ann
Unknown
I have had all winter) has been
called away to day to care of a sister
Unknown

just arrived supposed to have the ship
that is the Typhus fever– so I must
try again–

I stept out of the room a moment and when
I came back found Fanny in my chair with
the pen with which she has defaced this
and half a dozen other sheets of paper–
Do write soon and say you will go–
we shall leave about the 28th– Henry
will be in Canandaigua on business
week after next– he came home from
Albany last Saturday and left again
Tuesday morning for Washington– to
be absent 2 weeks– Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
examination
commenced last Monday continues two
weeks– Love to Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
