Editorial Note

This letter was written before the death of Alvah H. Worden in February 1856. It also appears to have been written after the marriage of Frederick William Seward and Anna Wharton Seward in November 1854. Since it appears to be written during the summer we are dating it 1855.

to the Lake to day
