Wednesday Sep Editorial note-The 23rd was a Thursday in 1852, so this was likely the 22nd.
23rd
My dear Sister,
If I thought my head would
ache any less to day morrow than it
does to day I would defer visiting
but I have no reason to suppose it
will as it has not for three days
past – I have your letter this morning
I presume by this time you are
less lonely than when you first went
home– I have not seen Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
until
to day– Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
drove me down there
this morning, as I was obliged to go
out to do some shopping– Clara says
she continues to take the medicine you
left and that she is quite well
again though I thought she looked
rather pale. I went also to see
Caroline Seward
Birth: 1828-05-22 Death: 1906-12-09
. Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
came home
last night– he left Caroline with
Mary Jayne
Birth: 1828 Death: 1905
– he had a glimpse
of Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
at Fishkill but was
not able to speak with him– I
had a letter from Augustus this
morning– he was then at Peekskill
said I might write to Sing Sing

that he should be home in the
course of a month– Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
I
expect Saturday– I have a Commonwealth
to send you but for the want of
energy it has not been sent– I
have also a Tribune with Greeley
Birth: 1811-02-03 Death: 1872-11-29

on Women's Rights–keep both if
you care for them–The Consortia
are in session to day– I hope that
they will not adopt the Baltimore
Platform but presume they will.
Weed
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22
& Greely are both there – Read
in to days Times the extract from
an English paper on the Fisher’s &
Seward– I will write you again when
I feel better. Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
is here to day
looking for a house– Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
and Amanda
Birth: 1842-02-01 Death: 1916-05-13

have gone with Mrs. Watrous
Birth: 1805-01-29 Death: 1860
to Cuttings

garden– I have been interrupted
twice with calls–
Your own Sister–
