Thursday
Friday morning 10th June–
My dear Henry,
It is not necessary that
I have both the Times and Tribune daily
suppose the Times be sent weekly or
semi-weekly as it would not answer to
discontinue it entirely at present –
Do if you have any influence with Kossuth
Birth: 1802-09-19 Death: 1894-03-20

persuade him not to engage in secret
associations at least in this Country – it
will lose him the respect of many honest
men – I see by the Tribune of yesterday
that Greely
Birth: 1811-02-03 Death: 1872-11-29
apprehends a compromise
platform by the Whigs – I know that
you will not encourage this by thought
word or deed – With a compromise platform
or compromise letter from Scott
Birth: 1786-06-13 Death: 1866-05-29
the Whig
defeat is inevitable and would be
well merited – That portion of the free
soil party who have no consciences can
be accommodated by the Loco Foco's
& those who have certainly could not
vote the Whig ticket under those circumstances

We have had incessant rain this week
The garden is very pretty when I
can get into it – Worden
Birth: 1797-03-06 Death: 1856-02-16
was here 1/2
an hour yesterday – he is attending court –
I received a letter from Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
this
morning – he enquires if the Congressional
Documents containing the Presidents message
etc have been published – from which I
infer he wishes a copy – his address
Old Point Comfort – The company are
now engaged on the bay between Norfolk
and the mouth of the Potomac –
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
writes that the Kossuth party are
all in New York for the present – I will
write to Madame
Birth: 1809 Death: 1865
before they leave –
Your own
Frances –
