Dear Mother
Last night
I felt of course a
little homesick. Morning
has however dispelled
it although the sun
does not shine,
So far from it
that we have had
a severe thunder-
storm and gas (at
half past seven) at
break-fast did its
service. Frances’es
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24

bouduar sitting room
were you say ladies
recieve their particular
friends, is Fannys (mine)

now, and Is am
writing in it; it is
very light has one window
and large glass doors
opening on the piazza.
It has rained hard
and a little bird
but a moment
ago sipped from one
of the puddles left by
it. There sits a little
robin near my parlor
window for me to
see his beautiful red
breast, give love
to all and this
little letter to Eliza.
I read in my testam-
ent this morning.

Good bye, and answer
my letter if it is not
too tiresome.
Your own little
Fanny
(Seward)
P.S. last night
Trippy
Birth: 1851-06-13 Death: 1862
would lay
between Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
and
I for fear he should
not get his share of
love. You will come
out here in the
summer some time
won’t you? good
bye dearest darling
mother.
your Little Fanny
