Editorial Note

May 13 was a Monday in 1850.
Sunday May 13th
My dear Henry,
I feel more lonely than
you can tell now you are all
gone – the day is cold and not
sufficiently pleasant to invite one
into the garden though I must
go over it once – I walked
through with Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
yesterday
and was much gratified with
his improvements – To night
I shall fancy you on your
way to Washington – I hope
you will keep well – this rapid
travelling does not affect my
head very agreeably – A letter
came yesterday from a man
in Syracuse by the name
of Leonard P. Rising
Unknown
– He wishes
to know when you pass through
Page 2

Syracuse as he is anxious to have
a conversation with you – As
he says he shall write again
if he fails to see you I do
not send this letter –
Another letter (which I do send)
is from Thomas Newman
Unknown
I
hope you will answer it in time
to benefit the poor man if
possible – It is a great
many years dear Henry since
we have been together uninterruptedly
for six months and I miss
you proportionally – Fred has
gone to Church – Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
and
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
are happy together in
the nursery – I am writing
in Grandpa's
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
room as he sent
for me to come down –
Love to Mr Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
&
Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
– I am curious to
know the next weeks proceedings
in the Senate –

Please tear off these directions
and give them to Charles
Unknown

Fanny sends a kiss –
Your own
Frances –
