Tuesday 13th – April
My precious child
Your 2d letter
came yesterday after I had
sent mine to the office –
The samples are very
pretty – would you like
one of those ginghams for
a common dress? – I have
no objection to the basque
if you wish it – the material
is very pretty – Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
goes
to New York tomorrow and
thinks Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
had better
go with him – I do not
see how you can be ready
to come home Tuesday
if your work is to be
commenced tomorrow –

If Tuesday will be too
soon for Willie to come
you may ask Frederick
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25

to let me know by
telegraph – I have been
in the garden where every
thing looks well – you
have some heartsease in
flower – also snow drops –
The birds are very musical –
I miss you to day
exceedingly – I am part
of the time unoccupied –
the house is very still –
Father has gone to Church –
Willie has gone to see if
pony
Unknown
is safe in pasture –
Randolph
Unknown
has just come
to read with him –

well – She may come some
