Auburn June 2d
My dear Augustus,
I was quite surprised
to find you were yet
in New York when I
had for some days
imagined you were
on the Chesepeake–
Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
did not go
to New York until
Tuesday – you have
probably seen him
before this time –
he will go to Orange
county
before he returns–

Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
came home sick
last Saturday with
Summer complaint – I
kept him until yester-
day morning – he was
well when he left
at least he said he
was though he looks
very thin and does
not seem strong –
I wish he could leave
the office for a month –
Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
has been with
me a week – she came
the same day you
left – Henry
Birth: 1822-02-03 Death: 1888-11-24
came
over Saturday
Page 3

and stayed until
Monday when they
returned together. Frances
thinks she will go to
some watering place
some time this month
but has not decided
where – Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
comes
over next week –
I found your book
of “Army Regulations
 Publisher: U.S. govt. Place of Publication:Washington, DC Date: 1841

in arranging the library
and send it this
day by Express –
Aunt Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
is well and
sends love – so does
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29

continues to recite
his lesson in Arithmetic
to Mr Mellen
Birth: 1822 Death: 1896
– and
to drive the pony once
each day – Mr Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07

has gone to Detroit but
did not stop here –
Nothing decisive has
been done about Fred's
interest in the journal –
I continue to improve
in strength though I
have occasional sick
days – Dieu vous garde
your Mother —
