Auburn August 1st
Dear Henry
I was exceedingly grieved
when I returned home on Monday
to find out you had been here without
my seeing you – I found
your kind note, – which I sent
to Fanny
Birth: 1805-09-24 Death: 1865-06-21
– and which I would
have answered immediately
had I been well – I hope
it is not now too late to
tell you – if you do not al-
ready know –– where to find
Fanny on your way from
Washington, the last of this
week – I had a letter
from her last evening – written
on Friday – She was there
at Bethlehem – intended to

leave there the next day
& thought they would be in
Orange Co – by to day –
would remain there several
days to rest & wait for
some one to accompany
her home – the little girl
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29

in the mean while to go to
Albany to meet her friend
Birth: 1843-02-20 Death: 1932-12-23

from Washington – You may
– and probably have – heard
all this before – but fearing
you have not I venture to
repeat it – The day
after you left the box
of lithographs arrived
I think it is the best like-
ness of you – extant and
hope it will supersede
that frightful print appen-
ded to “Distinguished Americans”

All well here at home –
My grandson
Birth: 1854-02 Death: 1931-05-23
and his mother
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24

are with me for a season –
I imagine, from the quantity
of mail sent here for Lieut –
Seward
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
, that Augustus will
soon be home – There are
many enquiries When you
are coming –
Your sister –
