Wednesday 11th Oct
My dear Henry,
I have this moment
received your letter written from
N. Y. last Friday it has been 5 days
on the way and came in company
with those for the children
x Birth: 1844-12-09  Death: 1866-10-29  Birth: 1839-06-18  Death: 1920-04-29 

from Wilmington – Willie Fanny
and Abbey
Birth: 1822 Death: 1895-09-16
have gone, this fine
autumn day to see Julia
Unknown
so
that your letters have not been
read to them – We have occasionally
a day of sunshine which is very
reviving – were I still expecting my
boy
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
home my spirits would
yield more easily to the influence
of a bright day – however I
hope I am thankful that his
health continues good and that
he has been preserved from much
danger –

Pieces of your speeches continue
to come to us – Making due
allowance for this love I bear
you I am persuaded they are
better than any others still I do
not think it wise to speak too
often – If you had any ambition
of that kind you would find
ample scope for its gratification
innumerable invitations to mass
meetings are awaiting your
return – The sound of the
hammer has ceased for a time
in our dwelling — the masons
Unknown

have succeeded the carpenters

Mr Blatchford
Birth: 1798-04-24 Death: 1875-09-04
was mistaken
when he said the house was
finished – Mr Blatchford and
Mr Morgan
Birth: 1808-06-04 Death: 1877-04-02
go to New York
early next week – Do not
on any account get me a velvet
dress – I have one now which
is nearly useless – neither do
I want a hat though I am

much obliged – I hear of
nothing new in the village –
Mr
Birth: 1794 Death: 1854-03-15
& Mrs Taylor
Birth: 1810 Death: 1866-05-17
I presume have
gone home without stopping
I went to the cars for them
the evening of the 5th and Clar-
ence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
went the next evening
with no better success –
Give my love t to Mrs Taylor
if you see her – We hear
that James Horner
Unknown
has made
an assignment – I hope it is
not so bad as is represented
I went to see his mother
Unknown
the other
day and fancied she looked
sad – The name of
the medicine Mr Spencer
Birth: 1788-01-08 Death: 1855-05-17
reccom-
ended is "Ponds' pain killer" a
vile name as he observed – it
is to be found at Frothinghams
Albany – It would be well
to get 100 weight of loaf sugar
medium quality – I shall
expect you Saturday –
ever your own
Frances
