Auburn Aug 19th
My dear Henry,
I read your speech yesterday which
occupied the time I would have written –
I do not see when you found time
or strength to study or make it
It is universally commended – Did
you not praise Mr Webster
Birth: 1782-01-18 Death: 1852-10-24
a
little more than was necessary –
I would he were a better man –
Why does he allow his name to
be used for the purpose of distracting
the Whig party – it is ungenerous
and dishonorable – I am expecting
George
Birth: 1808-08-26 Death: 1888-12-07
and his wife
Birth: 1824-02-11 Death: 1895
– I had the

Unknown from the orphan Asylum here
Saturday – gave them cake, berries &
milk, in the garden – I wish you could
have seen how happy they were
