My dear Henry
I intended
writing to Mary

to day
but can give no directions
until I know whether
you are to be in Washington
one month or three –
I await the action of
the House of Representatives.
Did you see the
article in yesterday’s
Journal about Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
?
Perhaps he is in Washington.
We are impatient to see him –

comes tomorrow
to accompany Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02

home – I am much
pleased with Anna –
She is sensible, seems
gentle and affectionate –
Her taste is more
delicate and her
mind more cultivated
than is usual for
young ladies of 19 –
I drove with Mrs
Horner
Birth: 1807 Death: 1876-10-31
Wednesday
some 7 or 8 miles
she is better than
she has been and younger

days – I hope you see
them – Weed
Birth: 1797-11-15 Death: 1882-11-22

been absent more
than a week – The
dimity came and is
just right –
your own Frances
Joshua Burt

presented
a subscription for Gas
in the Church yesterday
for which he says you
signed for $25 – shall I
pay it? –
