Saturday April 15th
My dear Henry,
Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
went home
Wednesday after waiting two
or three days that Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29

might be well enough to
go with her – was finally
obliged to go without her –
Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
went with Aunty –
Fanny is to go when she
is well and the weather
propitious – She has a sore
throat and slight cough –
Willie came back yesterday –
Lazette is preparing to move
Frances
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
and her baby

no opportunity of talking
with you – he still intends
to go to New York with

Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07

The Governors
Birth: 1810-05-31 Death: 1886-02-12
veto gives
much dissatisfaction to
the Temperance men who
are determined to have
an abstemious candidate
to oppose him this Fall –
I expect Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
home to
day though Mr Weed
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22

is still shut up in the
house & The Legislature
have not adjourned –

I was drawn into the
garden the last fine day –
– am not quite as well
as when you were at home –
William Wood’s
Birth: 1777 Death: 1857-08-05Certainty: Possible
chair did
not answer the purpose
Willie has made one
which answers very
well – The ground is
now covered with snow
two or there inches deep
your own
Frances –
