Washington 23d April ‘54
My dear Mrs Seward,
I cannot allow
yr very kind letter to pass
without acknowledgement.
Your revelations with re-
gard to a young lady
Birth: 1834-07-25 Death: 1922-02-28
,
who listened to a bache-
lor
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
, were interesting
quite, though not en-
tirely new to me. I am

glad to hear that they are
happy. I do like to hear
of happiness.
Our weather of late has
been fitful & hotter; but
I believe Spring has come
at last.
I hear of my sister’s
Birth: 1827-05-05 Death: 1876-05-29
health
as improving in the warm
climate of Cuba

. Today
or tomorrow she will
land at Savannah. I

trust yr own strength is
reviving, &, that, with our
genial season, it will
be completely returned. Your
husband
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
is well, & la-
borious as ever.
I have seen less this win-
ter of society than usual.
That Nebraska wickedness has
absorbed me for a while,
& since then our society
here has been quite dull.
But for Mrs Fish’s
Birth: 1816-12-17 Death: 1887-06-30
house
I should be very desolate.
Believe me, dear Mrs Seward,
Always yours,
Charles Sumner
