My Dear Uncle
I received your letter and its contents, a few days
since. I thank you very kindly for your attention to my
wants. I received papers concerning my school bill and
obeyed the directions and will return you the bill. I am
sorry to have troubled Aunty
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
when she was so much
engaged. I fear two months will be a short time for
you to accomplish all your business at Florida. I received
a letter from Mary
Birth: 1822 Death: 1872-08-27Certainty: Probable
, she mentioned that you were quite
ill at Florida. I was surprised to hear that Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24

was to be married so soon. Please tell Aunty that
I am obliged to go out to Washington and attend
to having my dresses made, Maria

has been here
and seems to be very anxious for your return, though
not more anxious than I. I suppose Fannie
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
and
Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
are very happy to be at home together.

here and must be still colder at home. Ask Aunty
to write me when she has time if you please. Give
my love to all.
