December 7 th 1851.
My dear Uncle
I wrote you a day or two since
saying that I thought of remaining here
during the Holiday’s, but now I have changed
my mind, as I have had a very polite in-
vitiation from a lady
Unknown
, a friend of my Fathers
Birth: 1798-11-26 Death: 1865-01-05

and I can not consistently with politeness
refuse, and I have concluded to accept &
written her in accordance. So I shall go
withthe day before Christmas to New York and
stay until the day after New Year’s when I shall
return to school. I have a paper from Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
to-day
in which tis stated that Orcutt
Birth: 1831
the young-
man in Utica is pardoned by the Governor
Birth: 1811-08-05 Death: 1867-02-02

I am very glad, as I think he wont ever do
this thing again, though he may escape from
the Auburn Prison, which I suppose is destin-
-ed to be his home

I do not hear from Aunty
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
. I presume she is
very busily engaged in preparing for Washington.
I think you & Mr Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
must have
a pleasant time keeping house all alone.
Remember me to Mary
Unknown
– if you please.
Your affectionate niece.
Caroline
