Dear mother – Aunty
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
and Uncle
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
left yesterday morning
and I came here to stay with Marianna
Birth: 1825-08-26 Death: 1872-07-03
– Where I’m
to remain until Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
comes if he does not wait too
long – Which I hope he will not – Today is Thanksgiving
and it makes me feel as if I ought to be at home
and I wish I was to spend it with those I was with
last year – Yesterday afternoon I went with Marianna
to Mrs Lucretia Motts
Birth: 1793-01-03 Death: 1880-11-11
to attend a sew a sewing
anti-slavery society – Instead of meeting a circle of quaker
matrons – They were all dressy quaker women married
young people – old maids and tittering girls – I presume
they all profesed to be of the Emerson
Birth: 1803-05-25 Death: 1882-04-27
School – but there
was no outward appearance or any evidence of spirituality
except Mrs. Mott and two or three others
Unknown
they were a curious
unintellectual gathering – Don’t tell Mrs Wright
Birth: 1806-12-25 Death: 1875-01-04

This morning we go to church – This afternoon to the dress-
makers
Unknown
and this evening Mr
Birth: 1816-04-09 Death: 1882-10-20
& Mrs Conger
Birth: 1822 Death: 1861-05-02
& her brother
Birth: 1812
and
Mr Canfield resident of this city are to call – Mr Conger is
the member from Cortland – and we found dinner at
the Washington House where Mr Canfield boards – Mrs
Wright knows Mr Canfield he spoke of her – Eliza has
seen him and is pleased with him – but he is not a
marrying man – though a very agreeable and pleasing
one – Oh dear Id like to be with you today – I am
tired of city life and long to be at home and shall
go as soon as I can unless in Washington I find people
more to my tastes than the generality of these Ive seen here
I mean that I was

[right Margin]
thrown most among – M. has distracted or else I have – for these days
it is not worthwhile to be bright to me – Tell Fred to be expeditious in coming
Ive seen beautiful white shawls here such as I wanted – but there was none in N.Y
