Auburn June 12t
My dear Henry
I perceive by the
Journals that you are in
your place in the Senate
again – I hope Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11

will be with you some
time this week – Fred
Birth: 1830-07-08 Death: 1915-04-25
and
Anna
Birth: 1836-03-29 Death: 1919-05-02
came last evening
and seem to enjoy the garden
the birds and the sunshine
immensely. Rover
 Death: 1858-07-04
makes
himself at home – doing
a large amount of barking
every day – Trip
Birth: 1851-06-13 Death: 1862
is sick –
just beginning to run about
again – We are all
dissatisfied with the ad-
mission of the Tribune
that it is not yet time
to nominate an Antislavery

man for the Presidency –
I shall never be able to see
that what is right is not
expedient –
I am sorry to hear that
Mr Sumner
Birth: 1811-01-06 Death: 1874-03-11
is still
unable to leave the house –
Fred says he will
look for an opportunity to
send your summer clothes
which consist chiefly
of three coats – I did
not know that you
purchased any cravats
in New York
Lazette
Birth: 1803-11-01 Death: 1875-10-03
& all the children
x Birth: 1844-12-09  Death: 1866-10-29  Birth: 1839-06-18  Death: 1920-04-29 

send love – your own
Frances –
