Philadelphia
Wednesday 2d
My dear Henry,
I have this morning
received your two letters from
Charleston– telling me you
will be detained a week longer
than you anticipated – I am
sorry on account of our garden
at home – I am to day much
better than I have been since
Saturday the day that Dr
Birkey
Birth: 1803-10-28 Death: 1867-08-08
completed my teeth
since then I have been con-
stantly suffering with pain
in my teeth neuralgia in
my head and face – My
teeth disappoint me as I fear
they will you –

Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
has been out to walk
both yesterday and to day – She
is better now than when
she came from home – It is
my present intention to leave
here in time to reach Baltim
Washington Saturday – I shall
make no stay in Baltimore
I know that you will
meet me there as soon
as you are able –
Dr Helmuth
Birth: 1802 Death: 1880-04-08
has been very
attentive and kind during
my illness – also Mrs Wilson
Birth: 1816 Death: 1871-05-26

and Mrs Mott
Birth: 1793-01-03 Death: 1880-11-11
– I have
not yet been able to make
one visit – Shall try to
do so tomorrow or the
next day – I have wanted
to see you more than you

a kiss – Your own
