Tuesday 11 July
My dear Henry
I deferred commencing
my journey two days with
the hope of hearing from
you – no letter comes –
I do not see your name
in the Congressional proceedings
and must therefore conclude
that you are very busy
or ill – I will hope the
former though I fear the latter –
I set out the day after
tomorrow Thursday the 13th.
Aunt Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
and Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29

are to go with me

to Owego where Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03

joins us – We shall
be at Owego Sunday – from
Owego we take the turnpike
to Milford Pa. then to
Easton on the Delaware.
Easton is 10 miles from
BethlehemFred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
will
join me at either of
the places named if I
wish – We shall
be in Easton about the
21st will it be possible
for you to bring or send
Louisa Weightmen
Birth: 1843-02-20 Death: 1932-12-23
to us
then or at any other
Page 3

of the places I have
named – I could not
make up my mind to leave
Fanny at home but will
send her back rather than
cause Louisa a disappointment.
There is one other place
connected with the Erie
Road, Munroe, which
is near where the Scranton
road (which unites with
the Erie at the Great Bend)
crosses the Owego & Milford
Turnpike – I am of course
supposing now that you do
not come up the 16th
Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
remains at home –

write again soon – Fred

Birth: 1812-10-29 Death: 1889-10-09

were here Sunday – Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24

spent the day with us
yesterday – May God
preserve you – your own
Frances –
