Friday March 23
My dear Henry,
I continue to write
as I see no immediate pros-
pect of your coming home –
I had another letter from
Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
this morning mailed
the 23d of Feb – He says he
is well and growing fat – that
he has gained 16 lbs since he
went to Ft Towson – My
letter contained a very nice
letter to his Cousin Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24

which I opened and read –
It is much easier for young
people to write to those of their
own age, obviously – I have
a distinct reccollection of this
fact myself –

Gus says nothing about a furlough
I shall however hope to see him
this Summer – Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
is
down stairs again and wishes
much to go out and see the
crows – She says I must
tell her father why she cannot
She is constantly watching for
birds – the cold has frightened
them away – Yesterday the
ground was covered with snow–
Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
wishes me to ask
you to use your influence
to get William Muir
Birth: 1824-09-16 Death: 1900-05-02
appointed
as one of the post office agents
on this line of the rail road.
Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
has after much tribulation
completed the letter I send –
Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
writes that she will
come home the 1st or 2d week
in April – Your own
Frances
