Thursday, Oct 16th
My dear Henry,
There are so many
letters that I think it best
to commence forwarding them
Four Two interest me
especially – that from Prof.
Bache
Birth: 1806-07-19 Death: 1867-02-17
& that from Syracuse
It is undoubtedly wise to
make the next application
for Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
just in the
manner advised by Professor
Bache – Last evening Mr
May
Birth: 1797 Death: 1871
the Unitarian clergyman
from Syracuse called with
Mr Austin
Birth: 1805-09-26 Death: 1880-12-20
to enquire the facts
of the letter from Mr Wheaton
Birth: 1809-07-01 Death: 1882-03-14

and was very desirous that
I should forward it

immediately – He expects with
Mr Wheaton & some other
persons to be arrested to day –
Four white persons
Unknown
& 1 colored
man
Unknown
were brought here
yesterday for examination
before Judge Conkling
Birth: 1789-10-12 Death: 1874-02-05

These are all respectable
men one of them a is
said to be a nephew
Birth: 1795Certainty: Probable
of
Gov Davis
Birth: 1787-01-13 Death: 1854-04-19
of Massachusetts
there is considerable excitement
here – 2 fugitives
Unknown
have
gone to Canada – one of them
was our acquaintance John
Unknown

Of course there is some
curiosity about the decision
of Judge Conkling – I have
no great faith in his firmness
– we heard some unfavorable
indication yesterday – As
I understood it he declines

the defendant to see
the affidavits which prevents
their sending for important
evidence – Jam- Lawrence

has not been out since you
went away – Mr Sackett
Birth: 1790-08-09 Death: 1865-06-02

very much – We are all
as well as usual – My best
Love to all our Goshen cousins
