Albany June 7th 1853
My dear Mother,
When I was at home
last month, Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
asked me
to pay his taxes at the Comptroller's
Birth: 1807-11-19 Death: 1868-04-12

office (95 cents). I did, but I
forgot to send him the receipts
Here it is. Will you hand it
to him?
John Ten Eyck
Birth: 1814-03-12 Death: 1879-08-24Certainty: Possible
says
that Stimpson
Birth: 1814 Death: 1857-11-30
of the "Day Book"
and Parke Godwin
Birth: 1816-02-25 Death: 1904-01-07
, of the
"Evening Post" were so favorably
impressed by the speech at Niagara

Falls that they avowed their
intention of writing no more abuse
of "Seward." Two or three
members of the Legislature, who
had only heard of the man
through their own party, were very
much astonished to find him
so different from what they
expected & believed.
All these pleasant days
I count as so much clear
gain for you. I hope Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

is with you this week.
Affectionately your son
Frederic
