Wednesday June 11th – 1851
My dear Henry,
Your Sunday and Monday letters
came together this morning – I am so oppressed
by my increase of cares that I find little
time for writing satisfactorily to any one –
I have been so much relieved since Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
came
home that I had almost forgotten how engrossing
my responsibilities had previously been –
We are all well – I received a letter from
Fred yesterday saying he was cordially received
by Judge Kent
Birth: 1802-10-02 Death: 1861-01-04
and was to commence his
studies with him Monday – had taken his
lodgings for the present at the Broadway Hotel –
his meals are to be obtained elsewhere–
He writes in fine spirits – I have had no time
yet to answer his letter – The Blatchfords
x Birth: 1817-08-27  Death: 1901-06-12  Birth: 1820-03-09  Death: 1893-07-07 

came home Saturday – George
Birth: 1808-08-26 Death: 1888-12-07
and Johnny
Birth: 1844-11-20 Death: 1917-01-31

are with us yet – Mr Gurnee
Birth: 1807-10-01 Death: 1863-12-10
came last
night – Polydore
Birth: 1799-07-02 Death: 1872-04-25
& Mary
Birth: 1822 Death: 1872-08-27
are to come
next week – Dr
Birth: 1793 Death: 1865-01-09
& Mrs Betsy Pitney
Birth: 1801 Death: 1860-08-06

of Chicago are here – we all took tea at
the Dr's
Birth: 1786-11-18 Death: 1853-04-20
yesterday – they are to come here
tomorrow – The masons have left us
but the housecleaning is unfinished and the
garden is overgrown – I will write again
when my head ceases to ache
Your own
Frances
