Auburn Jan10th
My dear Henry,
I have your letter of the
6th in which you say you have
had no letters recently − I
am at a loss to know what
has befallen them as Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
and I have each
written − I wrote last Monday
the 2d when Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
was
ill with scarlet fever – he
has entirely recovered so as to
be driving about town −
My own health is about the
same − I am half the time
too ill to do any thing
Page 2

and at such times feel
greatly inclined to send for
you to come home but I believe
no one else thinks me as
sick as I feel myself to
be so I improve my best
days to write − of which this
is one − Lazette went home
in compliance with a summons
from her daughter
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
last
Thursday − she will be
back again soon − Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

came home Saturday − is
well − Fanny sends love− I
wish you would purchase for
her a Bible
Author: Isabella Child Publisher: Loomis & Peck Place of Publication:Philadelphia Date: ca 1852
& Prayer book
when you have opportunity −
Page 3

The weather is so forbidingly
cold that I cannot advise
you to come home at present
though I wish very much
to see you − When I get
stronger I will write longer
letters − yours are a
great comfort −
ever your own
Frances —
