Albany, Feb. 19th 1855
My dear Mother,
I received the
assignments from Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
this morning
and at the same time the
enclosed note from my father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
.
It seems we were too fast.
I have written “cancelled” across
the assignment therefore, and
to prevent mistakes, requested
them to note the fact at
the Treasurer’s Department.
Perhaps it will be sufficient
to tell Mr. McClallen
Birth: 1791 Death: 1860-11-16
that

I find I cannot hold the
property so as to preserve it from
his creditors. Or I will tell him
and give him his assignment
& certificate when I come home
again.
Will you ask Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
to send
me Dr Wayland
 Death: 1863-10-16
’s address, so
that I can ask them to write
him here to preach some Sunday?
They have been trying several
clergymen at St. Peter’s. A week
ago we had Mr Fuller
Birth: 1802-04-23 Death: 1895-03-08
of
Andover, yesterday Mr Patterson
Birth: 1815-12 Death: 1876-03-19

of Salem N.J. next Sunday
we are to have Dr Cort
Birth: 1824-04-18 Death: 1905-03-20
, and
some subsequent Sunday Dr
Cressy
Birth: 1811-02-06 Death: 1866
, who has been

recommended by Gov. Hunt
Birth: 1811-08-05 Death: 1867-02-02
, and
Sam. Blachford
Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07
.
My table is covered with
articles from all sorts of papers
in reference to my father’s election.
There does not seem to be any
present opportunity to find room
for them in the Journal. If
they do not get in, in the course
of a week or two, I will send
them to you. The Legislature
monopolizes their columns pretty
much, now. The pamphlet
containing the Debate &c, will
be out this week.
It was very thoughtless in
me not to write that I was
quite well again. I have had
no more trouble from my arm
for some days.
Mrs. Weed
Birth: 1797 Death: 1858-07-03
and Harriet
Birth: 1826 Death: 1909-08-24
are

both better. All well at Mr Wharton
