Friday morning –
My dearest Henry,
I am so anxious about
you that I feel much disposed
to take the cars for Washington
immediately – leaving my company
to take care of themselves – Miss
Avery
Birth: 1833-09-01 Death: 1893-11-14
is to come tomorrow for a
visit and George Seward
Birth: 1808-08-26 Death: 1888-12-07
and
his bride
Birth: 1824-02-11 Death: 1895
next week – Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24

is here – Henry
Birth: 1822-02-03 Death: 1888-11-24
comes tomorrow –
If you wish me to come do not
fail to say so –
I am glad you wrote to Theodore
Parker
Birth: 1810-08-24 Death: 1860-05-10
– It grieves me to hear
many persons speak so unkindly
of Charles Sumner
Birth: 1811-01-06 Death: 1874-03-11
knowing as I do
that he is good and true – I
know your generous nature will

prompt you to say to him all that
is necessary or proper for
encouragement – “If ye were of the world
the world would love its own, but
because ye are not of the world, therefore
the world hateth you”—
I had read Mr Parkers speech some
time last week and was keeping it
for you – I wish Fred Douglas
Birth: 1818-02-07 Death: 1895-02-20

would not make such violant
speeches at the Free Soil conventions –
they only disgust moderate people
and encourage the advocates of Slavery –
I have not received the Intellegencer
with the eulogies — your own
Frances
