Tuesday June 24th 1851
My dear Henry,
We have no mail yet this morning
and I shall have no letter from you when it
does come, at least Carter
Birth: 1802-03-03 Death: 1887-10-11
said so owing to its
being the Sunday mail — Polydore
Birth: 1799-07-02 Death: 1872-04-25
& Mary
Birth: 1822 Death: 1872-08-27
came
back last Sunday morning — Henry Miller
Birth: 1820 Death: 1911-09-11
&
his sister Clara
Birth: 1827-12-03 Death: 1911-07-07
came the evevening previous —
Last evening Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
& I attended a party
at Mrs Thomas Howe’s
Birth: 1808 Death: 1866-04-16
— as we staid to supper
I & did not get home until after supper I
have a very uncomfortable headache in consequence —
Miss Hobbie
Birth: 1830-01-11 Death: 1919-05-03
is here again with Mrs Marvin
Birth: 1810-07-08 Death: 1888-05-06

Mr
Birth: 1823-09-05 Death: 1886-06-01
& Mrs Griswold
Birth: 1823-10-29 Death: 1852-02-14
came Saturday — they
were married the Tuesday previous — I
have not seen her yet but hear she is very
feeble — I think she will not recover —
Henry Richardson
Birth: 1815-10-25 Death: 1893-01-20
lost every thing by the fire
at San FranciscoHenry Perry
Birth: 1807 Death: 1875
was in a fire
proof building surrounded by the fire on all
sides — he escaped with his life and a
trifling pecuniary loss — Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
& Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
are
serenading me this morning — they both have
musical talent which justifies cultivation —
I have a long letter from George
Birth: 1808-08-26 Death: 1888-12-07
which
I think indicates abberration of intellect –

the subject of the letter is complaints of your
injustice — it is incoherently written and has
satisfied me that George is on the verge
of insanity — constant brooding over his troubles
with a cheerless home & want of occupation
are enough to unsettle a stronger mind —
I think he should be removed from Florida
and given some daily occupation if such
a thing is possible — it may keep him from
the lunatic asylum — It has troubled me
much when I have had time to think of it —
Lazette thinks she must go home this week
I do not know how I can get along without
her unless some of our cousins
Unknown
come from
Romulus to read and sit with Pa
Birth: 1772-04-11 Death: 1851-11-13

I hear no further from our boys
x Birth: 1828-10-07  Death: 1897-07-24  Birth: 1826-10-01  Death: 1876-09-11  Birth: 1830-07-08  Death: 1915-04-25 

your own
