Thursday morning –
My dear Sister,
After writing two short
letters yesterday I found
I could not write you a
long one so I waited until
to day. I was sick two
days with head ache after
Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
and Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
left —
Clarence
Birth: 1828-10-07 Death: 1897-07-24
sat at the head
of the table pouring tea and
coffee – Both he and Sam
Birth: 1820-03-09 Death: 1893-07-07

went to New York yesterday —
Sam said he should probably
be here on his way to Buffalo
as Mrs. Morgan
Unknown
was very
urgent in her invitation
to his wife
Birth: 1817-08-27 Death: 1901-06-12
to come there –
I never have seen him

so agreeable since his marriage –
I saw him but a few times –
Since he left I take break-
fast with the family, Mr
Seymour
Birth: 1791-04-15 Death: 1875-12-03
dines and takes
tea with Henry
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
– He has
taken Sam's place in the
business matters – I am
making a persevering effort
to get Mrs. Campbell
Unknown
off
to Albany this week but
she being in no hurry to go
I may not succeed – She
has washed for herself and
child
Unknown
3 days – If she irons
these she will not go this
week — Mr. Wharton
Birth: 1808-02-07 Death: 1868-09-09
offers
to keep her a short time
until she finds a situation.

I shall feel relieved when
she is provided for finally —
I sent the day I received
your letter to enquire
when Harriet
 Death: 1888-08-20
g was going
to Canandaigua – the
answer received was that
she would not go until
the last of next week –
I thought to send Eliza
with Henry when he went
to Buffalo but as that
is the 7th of Aug – Harriet
will not have completed
her visit — I have
some time ago proposed to her
and Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
to come here
for 1 year – I have no
answer yet – I shall not
urge it as I prefer they
Page 4

should not come unless they
feel it is for their own
intent to do so – I can
make some other arrangement
about which and many
other things I want to see
you – Do you know any
thing of a bill at Fitch's
Birth: 1800 Death: 1883-01-30

store? – were those blankets
purchased there? I cannot
remember whether they were
paid for or not – They
spoke to Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
about the
bill saying the purchases
were made by Mrs Worden.
You did not write what
you meant to say about
the books – You say
they were published in 24
& could not have been
purchased later you
meant earlier I suppose
