Albany
February 12th 1855.
My dear Uncle,
I wish not to be the last to
congratulate you, upon the recent
triumph, of the Whig-Party. Your
reelection to the Senate was received
with great applause in the Capitol
& the firing of cannons announced
the much wished for victory, gained.
The multitudes congregated here
for the occasion, have dispersed,
& Albany is again rather quiet.
John C. Wright
Birth: 1801 Death: 1862-01-24

Birth: 1810 Death: 1888-05-03

Albany after the session closes?

is well, but much
confined to the Bank; My son
Birth: 1854-08-05 Death: 1913-05

grows finely — & I think, shows a
decided tendency to the White House.
Your affectionate niece
C.C. Schoolcraft
The Honorable
William H. Seward
Washington
