Thursday March 24th
My dear Gus,
I know you would
like to see a line if no
more in Mother's own hand–
I am improving slowly
but cannot boast much
strength yet– The unfavourable
weather keeps me a prisoner–
Mr Hawley
Birth: 1810-02-10 Death: 1884-11-10
is with Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10

since Mr Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
& Caroline
Birth: 1834-07-25 Death: 1922-02-28

left– Caroline does not
reach home yet– we are
looking for her– Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24

passed through yesterday
you must miss her–
Father does not say when

he comes home– Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

has been quite ill with a cold–
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
has not been home
yet– Aunt Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05

is well– she comes up
almost every day– wishes
much to see you– Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29

& Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29

your
Mother
