My dear Henry
I send a line
by Thomas Miller
Birth: 1817-07-09 Death: 1864-07-23Certainty: Possible
as
we have no mail
again until Monday –
Thomas is on his way
to Philadelphia without
being quite sure what

him – Greely’s
Birth: 1811-02-03 Death: 1872-11-29
nomination

Alternate Text: not
wish the true
issue to be put one side–
I think they would even
prefer the defeat of an

I send two coats by Thomas
the third is white and
so stained that I thought
you would not like to
wear it in its present con-
dition – We are all well
as usual – The weather
is cool with much rain –
I hear of no sickness
in Washington yet – hope
you may keep well –
I have your letter of
Wednesday – am sorry

continues so unwell –
What shall we do with
our calf? – He is rather
troublesome here and Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29

says will get out of the
pasture where the cows are –
He is a beautiful creature
and were it not for his mischievous
propensity of chewing the harness

whenever he finds it, I
would prefer to keep him
here for the present –
I am writing by twilight
Your own Frances
When Augustus
Birth: 1826-10-01 Death: 1876-09-11
comes tell
him Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
