Sunday, May 21st–
My dear Henry
This letter came
last evening – The statuary
to which the check
refers came a week
ago – The vases
were both broken
not badly but so broken
(one of them) that it
cannot be repaired –
Mr Racish
 Death: 1863
says that
they are not weather
proof that though
made of more enduring
material than the

vases we had before
still the frost would
destroy and rain
impair them –
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
& Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
came
last night will
return tomorrow –
I am sorry Fred has
not a few days to
spare – your own
Frances –
