and
younger children

Unknown – Polydore looks
well – Having other connec-

to the hotel last evening –

(Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
read it for me the
first time) – and assuming
that you had nothing to do
with it we gave it little
attention – it is a clear
and strong exposition of
the past, present & future
of slavery domination but
certainly not in the least
eloquent, which I suppose
was purposely avoided –
I enclose a letter to Mary
Birth: 1819-11-24 Death: 1854-12-18

with some directions about
furniture – your own
Frances –
