Thursday April 20th
My dear Henry,
I was so ill when I
wrote Tuesday that my letter
may have caused you some
uneasiness– I am better now–
Have you read S. Ruggles
Birth: 1800-04-11 Death: 1881-08-28

appeal to the Trustees of
Columbia College? – Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

read it for me last Sunday–
Nothing emanating from our
Church has given me so
much pleasure in a long time
The sentiments are much
more in accordance with
the teachings of “The Son of God”
than those we often hear
from the pulpit–

When you write to Mr Ruggles
thank him for me–
I trust the publication
of the appeal may prove
an era of more liberal
and catholic Christianity
in the Episcopal Church.
I am lonely just
now– Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
has gone to
Canandaigua for a visit–
I find she has become too
necessary a part of my
daily life– I hope the
change will benefit her–
She has already written me
two letters– Aunt Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05

and Abbey
Birth: 1822 Death: 1895-09-16
who went over
with her came back the

next day– Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
was
very busily engaged preparing
the house for the reception of
her daughter
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
and grandson
Birth: 1854-02 Death: 1931-05-23
who
are to take up their abode
there for the Summer–
Lazette will bring Fanny
home when she gets them
comfortably established –
Please reserve for Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11

2 or 3 copies of The Coast Survey –
in addition to those I have–
Your own
