Thursday June 19th
My dear Henry,
You have heard of the death of
James Weed
Birth: 1820-12-10 Death: 1851-06-18
— it is very sad — I will write
to Mrs Weed
Birth: 1797 Death: 1858-07-03
to day — I am very sorry Mr
Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
is not there — How well that
Mr Weed
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22
and Harriet
Birth: 1819-02-06 Death: 1893-11-01
did not go to Europe —
Our cousins are all gone and we are alone to day —
Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
is impatient for her mother
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
to
come home — I expect another cousin
Unknown
from
Romulus next week but doubt her efficiency
in amusing Grandpa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13
Thompson Young
Birth: 1827 Death: 1902-06-23
was
quite agreeable but we could not persuade
him to stay — he left us yesterday —
The weather is pleasantly warm & the garden
blooming —roses of all colors and other flowers
in abundance while the air is perfumed
with the syringa — I am so sorry you
and Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
are away — I have a long letter
from Fred — he spent Sunday at Col Webbs
Birth: 1802-02-02 Death: 1884-06-07
and
visiting places of interest in that vicinity —
Mary Blatchford
Birth: 1823-10-29 Death: 1852-02-14
is married — all well
your own Frances
