My precious petite
Willie
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
came home
safely last night bringing
Aunty’s
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
and your letters
with the beautiful dahlias.
I am glad to hear all are
so comfortable at Canandaigua.
Father
Birth: 1801-05-16 Death: 1872-10-10
came home at
6 oclock – said it seemed
lonely without you and
Willie — The same
train of cars brought
a letter for Eliza
saying her mother

was supposed to be dying
and wishing her to

come immediately to
Cazenovia — Father went
to the cars with her at
nine oclock – put her
under the care of some
person
Unknown
he knew — she
felt very badly about
her mother — The letter
said she had cramp
in the stomach (spasms)
and that the Physicians
said she could not
live through the night —
the letter was written
yesterday morning— I miss
Eliza very much
but Miss Bennet
Birth: 1811
will
help me some — it is

well I had so much of my
packing done — Father thinks
he will be able to go with
me a week from tomorrow –
he goes to Buffalo Friday —
I know Aunty has read
that excellent speech he
made at Albany – he is
to speak again in Buffalo

& Mrs Grier

and
Mary
Birth: 1839-09-05 Death: 1930-06-04

with Father — he would
have brought Mary home
with him had not her
Uncle James
Birth: 1812-09-28 Death: 1860-06-12
been about
leaving for N. Orleans — they
were going to N. York to take
leave of him. I was glad she
did not come just now

though she is a very nice
girl — Birdie & Watch
 Death: 1856-04-29

are well and send love –
Watch could not make
out this morning, how
Father came to be in your
place – so he kissed us
both and set down to have
his back rubbed — Little
dollie slept in the large
chair and now sits on
the table looking at me
very intently — Tell dear
Aunty I will write to her
tomorrow — Did Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24

girl go with you – I will
ask Willie — I was so much
disturbed last night by poor
Eliza’s trouble and the hurry of
getting her off that I slept none
God bless my darling
Mother —
