Washington Monday 12th
My dear Sister,
Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
has at length
obtained an interview with Prof. Bache
Birth: 1806-07-19 Death: 1867-02-17

and learned his destination – he is to
go the latter part of this month with
a company to some part of the Chesepeake
he thinks the southern part – from there
the company go this Summer on the
Hudson River, probably as early as June –
He may from there be able to go home
for a day but that is uncertain, he
will at least be where we can go and see
him – Now the question is where we had
Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
better go to see him? – If you
could come immediately I should say
come here now as he may be here
two weeks yet – & I want Clara to
come some time – I shall probably
come down in the course of the Summer
and then if Clara would come it
would be equally pleasant & she

might also visit Pittstown – I have
said nothing to her about Pittstown
as I did not wish her to be decided
by that or by the circumstance that
Augustus himself thinks it would
be more pleasant for her to come &
see him on the Hudson – There is so
much uncertainty attending delay
that I believe wherever she is willing
to come, is the best time. Will
you decide and let me know.
Mr Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
does not go North
as soon as he expected he may
go the last of this week and
may wait until after the Whig
Caucus which is postponed until
a week from tomorrow – What is
the prospect of your coming with
or without Clara – I want very much
to see you somewhere – Augustus
seems pleased with his arrangements for
the summer – he is a dear good child
I enclose a letter of the Tribune correspondent
Mr Pike
Birth: 1811-09-08 Death: 1882-11-29
– All well – your own Sister —
