Tuesday 27th
My dear Henry,
Mr Schoolcraft
Birth: 1804-09-22 Death: 1860-07-07
and
Caroline
Birth: 1834-07-25 Death: 1922-02-28
came Saturday
evening and spent
Sunday with us – left
yesterday morning –
They will remain at
Congress Hall for the
present, Carolines’
situation rendering it
unadvisable for them
to commence housekeeping
at present – They
both say they are in
good health –

I have many things to
say ‘unto’ you but must
wait until you come –
Mr Schoolcraft says you
must be in Saratoga
the 16th of July – Will you
come home first and
what about the young

Unknown I shall (if I
continue well enough) set
out for Bethlehem as early
as the carriage is ready
which Mr Carpenter
Birth: 1821 Death: 1885-10-25
intends
us to use – Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
and
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
will go with me
as far as Owego and
return to meet you

and our young friends –
Perhaps I too may be
home in time but that is
of less importance –We are
promised the wagon by the
5th but it may be some
days later – Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
or
Abbey
Birth: 1821-04-04 Death: 1896-07-07
will join me when
Lazette leaves if you
cannot – which seems
probable – If you think
best I will go to Saratoga
some time in August – if
a quiet place can be had –
So it was your address – I
should never have recognized
you in any thing so very
moderate – but it is

satisfactory to Whigs – Mr
Schoolcraft enlightened us a little
on political affairs but I
was unable to talk with
him as much as I wished
Your own Frances –
Fanny has Louisas
Birth: 1843-02-20 Death: 1932-12-23
letter
and is rejoicing in her coming–
I had also a kind note
from Mrs Weightman
Birth: 1820 Death: 1869
