Friday July 19th
My dear Henry,
I have your letter
of Tuesday. I glad you
all continue well.
When "Fidelity, Constancy,
Justice & Humanity" are
more fashionable the world
will be greatly improved.
we must wait until that
time comes to have those
qualities appreciated.
I send a letter to Caroline
Birth: 1834-07-25 Death: 1922-02-28
.
She intends to go to New Jersey
during her vacation. Then
she can come here or go to

Florida as she prefers.
You will advise her.
Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
dined with us
Monday and seemed
much better – since that
time I have not seen
him. I hear of him
going to Dr Brigg's
Birth: 1807-12-05 Death: 1888-04-24
office.
Mr Blatchfords
Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07
man
Unknown
says
he has not been there
since they left, Monday
now. His peculiarities
give me some uneasiness.
I hope a wife will make
him more happy than
he seems now.
William Sackett
Birth: 1811-11-18 Death: 1895-09-06
and Gary
Birth: 1790-08-09 Death: 1865-06-02

met here unexpectedly

Yesterday – both dined
with us. I was glad
to see a face from Washington.
Mrs Taylor
Birth: 1788-09-21 Death: 1852-08-14
could not find
a kinder friend than Mrs
Meredith
Birth: 1801-02-20 Death: 1853-06-28
I am glad they
are there. You have my
letter on this.
I do not know when this
will reach you as the
overflowing of the Mohawk
has occasioned another break
in the rail-road.
Love to the boys
x Birth: 1830-07-08  Death: 1915-04-25  Birth: 1826-10-01  Death: 1876-09-11 
and Mr
Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
.
Your own
Frances.
Mr Sackett says there is no
probability of an adjournment
before Sep.
