Auburn April 26th
My dear Son,
Your letter from
Washington came Monday
I am glad to feel assured
that you are well —
The Sunday after you left
Mr Sumner
Birth: 1811-01-06 Death: 1874-03-11
came and
remained until Tuesday
afternoon — his lecture
gave very general satisfaction —
Aunty
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
and Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
were
delighted with it —
Your Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
left Tuesday
morning for Saratoga
where he remained until
Saturday — then went
to Albany, and Tuesday
of this week to N. York

where he is at present —
his business will detain
him there 10 or 12 days
longer — The same day
that your father went
to Saratoga Aunty and
Fanny went to Canandaigua
where Fanny remains yet —
She will come home
Monday of next week —
Uncle Worden
Birth: 1797-03-06 Death: 1856-02-16
has had
another ill turn — is
better again —
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
and Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
came
up last Saturday — Fred
went back to Albany
Tuesday — Anna stays
with me — which is
very pleasant, I am

lonely without Fanny —
They were sorry not to
have seen you — which
they hope to do the next
time you come —
I am impatient to know
where you go next hoping
it will not be far away –
Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
continues to work
at the documents with
tolerable diligence — He
declines going to Geneva
to Dr Reed’s
Birth: 1811 Death: 1883
school as
your father proposed —
The weather is mild —
every thing begins to look
like Spring — George Seward
Birth: 1808-08-26 Death: 1888-12-07

writes for your father
to come to Florida

Clara Miller
Birth: 1821 Death: 1907
is staying
with Aunt Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
who is
very well — We see them
almost every day —
God bless you
Mother —
